I completed my BEng in Chemical Engineering at the University of Queensland, Australia, in 2000, and my PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Queensland in 2008. I joined the department of Chemical Engineering at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia as a post-doctoral research fellow in 2008. In February 2012 I joined the department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield as a lecturer.
I am interested in the study of particulate systems in industries including pharmaceuticals, foods, detergents, biological processing and water, using a combination of experimental and computational simulation tools.
I am also a founding member of the Pharmaceutical Engineering Interest Group.
