I received BS and MS degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of California Davis, and a PhD degree from University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. Following two years as a lecturer at Michigan Technological University I joined the research staff at Princeton University, working on stochastic spray modelling.

In 1993 I joined the Chemical Engineering Department at the University of Sheffield where my interests have developed in the context of this discipline and the rapid evolution it is experiencing. My recent work has aimed to address fundamental technical issues within the emerging area of microfluidics, including those of mixing and flow control. Other areas of interest include development of rotating spiral phase contacting and other multiphase flow processing steps.

Research interests

My research makes considerable use of theoretical and computational tools, both to aid experimental design and to guide development of practical devices. This close coordination between quantitative predictive tools and practical application is a prerequisite for fuller understanding and more efficient designs to be achieved rapidly.

Research interests:

  • Microfluidic devices for analysis, synthesis and measurement
  • Efficient separation processes
  • Transport of momentum, species and heat
  • Rotating spiral phase contacting
  • Rapid property measurement and analysis
