Lectureships for Carmine D'Agostino, Mark Williamson and Krishnaa Mahbubani

Krishnaa Mahbubani and Carmine D'Agostino

Congratulations to Carmine D'Agostino, Mark Williamson and Krishnaa Mahbubani who took up their Unestablished University lectureships on 1 October 2013.

Carmine D'Agostino was previously a Post doctoral researcher here and last summer he was awarded a Junior Research Fellowship from Wolfson College. His research focuses on the study of adsorption and dynamics of molecules within catalytic materials, aiming at understanding the behaviour of liquid confined in catalyst nanopores. This information can then be used to design and optimise catalytic processes. He also investigates mesoscopic structural organisation in liquid mixtures and their dynamics. He use several methods, including NMR and THz spectroscopy. This year Carmine will be teaching equilibrium thermodynamics, homogeneous reactors and dynamics.

Mark Williamson completed his PhD here a few years ago and joins us from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. His research interests are Computational Fluid Dynamics modeling in industrial driers, ovens and furnaces and industrial process sensor development.

Krishnaa Mahbubani has recently completed her PhD at the department where she engineered platforms for oral vaccine delivery. Her research interests lie in understanding the mechanisms behind temperature stabilisation of cells (bacterial and mammalian) with a goal to removing the need for cold-chain during storage and transport. This year Krishnaa will be teaching chemical product design, biotechnology, Laplace transforms, computing and exercises as well a few short lectures as part of the MPhil ACE programme.
