Dr Boek

Dr Edo Boek
PhD

Reader in Chemical Engineering
Research in the group of Dr Edo Boek focuses on energy engineering. One of the greatest challenges of our generation is the supply of energy in a sustainable, secure and affordable manner (Energy-Trilemma). Our group investigates novel technologies to achieve this goal, including 1) design of carbon electrodes for electrochemical devices, including Redox Flow Batteries, using pore-scale imaging, reactive multi-phase flow modelling and MD simulation; 2) bio-fuel extraction from micro-algae, using Photo-Bio-Reactor (PBR) / soft matter experiments; 3) sustainable drinking water treatment, including water softening and GAC filtration, using Fluidised Bed Reactor (FBR) experiments (with Waternet Amsterdam); 4) novel drilling fluids for geothermal heat recovery.

Dr Buchan

Dr Andrew Buchan
BSc MSc PhD

Senior Lecturer in Engineering Science
I design numerical models for predicting the behaviour and understanding the uncertainties in the operation of nuclear reactor cores and other nuclear processing facilities. In particular I develop mathematical models to accurately predict neutron and gamma transport within nuclear reactors, and couple these to thermal hydraulic codes that model coolant flows and heat transfer within a core. I am particularly interested in analysing both current nuclear reactors as well as those due to be built within the UK in the coming years, in particular the boiling water reactors. I am also heavily involved in the design of new mathematical models that predict the progression/state of a nuclear reactor's core in the event of severe accident scenarios.

My research is focussed on 'mechanobiology' or how living cells and tissues respond to physical forces. In particular I am interested in the role of the fascinating cellular structure known as the primary cilium (cilia in plural). My work also explores the development of organ-on-a-chip models incorporating biomechanical stimulation for predicting the performance of pharmaceuticals.

Prof Screen

Prof Hazel Screen

Professor of Biomedical Engineering
My research aims to understand how our tissues are built to be able to withstand the loads they experience in the body. I am particularly interested in understanding tendon and heart valve; how and why they get injured, and ways to prevent this happening. By looking at the ways a tissue is supposed to work when it is healthy, we can identify how small changes in the structure, such as those which occur with age, can make injury more likely and look to prevent or treat these specifically.

Dr Petra Ágota Szilágyi
PhD, MRSC, FHEA, MSc, MA

Co-director of Division of Chemical Engineering and Renewable Energy /
Lecturer in Functional Materials
I am interested in developing materials for energy applications, in particular for fuel synthesis. When solid materials are of very small particles their properties (such as colour, electric conductivity. etc.) starts to depend on the particle size. My main goal is to achieve control of the properties of materials by controlling their particle size and shape. There are various ways to control particle size, and in my approach templates of well-defined size and shape are used. The above templates are pores of a kind of material called metal-organic frameworks. This is a relatively new kind of materials and they can enter very diverse interactions with guest materials, which I aim to explore to further tailor the latter's properties.
