Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology

Promotions 2015 - Ian Wilson

Dr Ian Wilson is to be promoted to a personal professorship following this year's round of senior academic promotions.

Ian joined the Department as a University Assistant Lecturer in 1994 after completing his PhD at the University of British Columbia. He currently leads the Paste, Particle and Polymer Processing Group (P4G) with a diverse range of research interests in the field of soft solids and surfaces.

Ian received the news while attending the International Conference on Heat Exchanger Fouling and Cleaning held in Enfield, Eire.  He and one of his PhD students, Ole Mathis Magens, won two of the three poster prizes awarded at the conference.

Ole Mathis Magens presented his paper on Value pricing of antifouling surface coatings (co-authors Jurgen Hofmans and Martial Paborn of Chemours and Chemours/Du Pont) while Ian Wilson presented work from Vincent Lister's PhD work with John Davidson and Steve Sutcliffe (Huntsman) entitled Management of acute particulate fouling in a titanium dioxide reactor system.
