Promotions, August 2005

Congratulations to Dr Silvana Cardoso, Dr Adrian Fisher and Dr Ian Wilson who have been promoted to personal Readerships and to Dr Michael Johns on his promotion to a University Senior Lectureship.

Dr Silvana Cardoso 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 Adrian Fisher
Dr Ian Wilson 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 2006.
Dr Michael Johns conducts his research at the 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. Dr Michael Johns
