Dr Silvana Cardoso, Dr Adrian Fisher and
Dr Ian Wilson who have been promoted to personal Readerships and
Dr Michael Johns on his promotion to a University Senior Lectureship.
Dr Silvana Cardoso's research interests
are in the areas of fluid mechanics,
transport processes and mixing, with applications in the environment and
industry. One of her most recent papers, presented by one of her PhD
students, Sean McHugh at the 7th World Congress of Chemical Engineering in
Glasgow, assessed the safety and sustainability of deep ocean CO2 release.
Dr Adrian Fisher is head of the
Centre for Research in
Electrochemical Science and Technology (CREST).
Their research unites a range of interdisciplinary technologies including;
microfabrication, fluid dynamics, numerical simulations, spectroscopic
analysis and electrochemical methodology. These technologies are employed
to design, manufacture and apply microscale reactor systems for the
development of the next generation of (bio)chemical sensors.
Dr Ian Wilson's research interests lie
in the processing of pastes and related micro-structured materials,
fouling and cleaning. Much of his work is related to the food, fine
chemicals and pharmaceuticals sectors. He leads the
Paste and Powder Processing Group
and is currently organising the conference on
Fouling, Cleaning &
Disinfection in Food Processing 2006 to be held in Cambridge in March
Dr Michael Johns conducts his research
Magnetic Resonance Research Centre.
His research interests lie in two distinct areas: structure-processing
relationships of materials and contaminant hydrology.
In this respect, there is particular focus on the development and use of
various magnetic resonance (MR) techniques.
