Danckwerts-Pergamon Prize for Markus Sander

Markus Sander

The Danckwerts-Pergamon Prize is awarded by the Department each year for the best PhD dissertation on a subject connected with Chemical Engineering. The winner is chosen from those students who gained their PhDs in the preceding calendar year.

Markus Sander is the winner of the Danckwerts-Pergamon Prize for 2011 for his work entitled, Mathematical Modelling of Nanoparticles from the Gas-Phase. The work was supervised by Prof Markus Kraft.

Markus studied a detailed particle model framework for inorganic and organic nanoparticles. Nanoparticles are described in the model by primary particles that are in turn composed of individual molecules. The connectivity of the primary particles is tracked to calculate particle rounding and sintering on a local level between neighbouring primary particles.

He applied the particle model to three different cases: the sintering of silica nanoparticles, the growth of soot particles in premixed flames, and the formation of nanoparticles on Titan, a moon of Saturn.

Markus is now working for a consulting company in the financial sector.
