 Biography

I am originally from Nagpur, India. I came to UK in August 2008 to pursue my PhD within Particle Products Group at The University of Sheffield. The topic of my PhD was ‘Twin screw granulation: A detailed study’. I graduated in March 2012. After graduation, I worked as product technologist for ‘Nestle PTC York’ until Jan 2014. I am now working as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Agba Salman.

 


Current Research

I am working on continuous granulation using ‘Twin Screw Granulation’ which has become popular in the pharmaceutical industry. The research work involves the fundamental understanding of the twin screw granulation process and the development of model continuous granulation process.
