Summary of Expertise:

Listed with other top experts in: 

Expert has extensive experience in numerical modelling particulate material manufacturing and characerisation, modelling and characeristion of the behaviour of particulate materials during the manufacturing processes for pharmaceutical and other particulate products at microscopic and macroscopic levels. In particular, he developed models for predicting the properties of products based on the properties of particles and individual constituents, which can also be used to analyse the segregation of powder blends.

Furthermore, he used advanced characterisation technique in characterising the properties of single particles and particulate products, and exploring the flow behaviour of particulate materials during the processing using advanced analytical techniques, including X-ray Computed Tomography (XRCT), and Nanoindentation, besides standard powder chaceterisation methods, such as particle size and distribution, surface area and porosity.
