Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am passionate about particles, especially how we can influence their formation by controlling crystallization to deliver particles with physical attributes designed to deliver optimal performance in formulated products. I have recently moved from managing particle science related innovation and product development in the pharmaceutical industry to pursue fundamental research in crystallization focussing on enhancing the purification of organic molecules by active intervention during the crystal growth process.
