Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology


The Computational Modelling Group develops and applies modern numerical methods to problems arising in chemical engineering. The overall aim is to shorten the development period from research bench to the industrial production stage by providing insight into the underlying physics and supporting the scale-up of processes to industrial level.

The group currently consists of 18 members from various backgrounds. We are keen to collaborate with people from both industry and academia, so please get in touch if you think you have common interests.

The group's research divides naturally into two interrelated branches. The first of these is research into mathematical methods, which consists of the development of stochastic particle methods, computational fluid dynamics and quantum chemistry. The other branch consists of research into applications, using the methods we have developed in addition to well established techniques. The main application areas are reactive flow, combustion, engine modelling, extraction, nano particle synthesis and dynamics. This research is sponsored on various levels by the UK, EU, and industry.
