On the 26th July Dr Vassiliadis lectured a second more advanced one day course for postgraduate students and invited delegates from industry.

Dr Vassiliadis' area of research at Cambridge is the application of modern numerical methods in the field of process design and optimisation. His aim is to provide improved designs for new chemical processes and plants, and to improve the performance and operation of existing ones.
