Our research expertise is in particle engineering and nanostructured materials, with focus on design of novel particulate products and efficient processes for their manufacturing, across a wide range of applications from nucleation and crystallisation, to protein and peptide self-assembly, to organic gels and nanocomposites.
Our research in pharmaceutical manufacturing aligned with CMAC seeks to enhance access to medicines by increasing quality and reducing costs with the aim improving people’s health and wellbeing.
We develop experimental workflows for product and process development of particulate systems for pharmaceutical applications to obtain better control of critical quality attributes in medicines manufacturing.
We also develop new methods for extracting valuable real time information from process analytical tools such as imaging and scattering/backscattering to enable intelligent decision support for monitoring and control of particulate systems and processes, including fouling detection and accurate quantitative estimates of particle shape and size distributions from in situ measurements.
