Personal Statement

I joined CMAC at Strathclyde University in Sept 2014 as a consultant supporting purchases for secondary pharmaceutical processing capabilities funded by the RPIF award. I then took up the position of strand leader for application B (Hot melt extrusion) of the REMEDIES project which aims to challenge current supply chains in the pharmaceutical sector www.remedies-project .org. Additionally I work on commercial-in-confidence research projects within CMAC.

Overall my own interests and the outputs of these projects focus upon simplifying, modernising and improving reliability and control over pharmaceutical manufacturing processes and analytical methodologies.
