Dr Azevedo

Dr Helena Azevedo MEng, PhD

Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Engineering & Biomaterials
Molecular self-assembly, the spontaneous organization of molecules into ordered aggregates by noncovalent interactions and without external control, is of central importance to life (e.g., protein folding, formation of lipid bilayers). Using biological inspiration and tools of chemistry, physics and engineering, we aim to explore new (macro)molecular units (peptides and sugar polymers) mimicking the composition and structure of carbohydrates and proteins (vital constituents of all organisms) to develop materials by self-assembly with particular properties and function for bioengineering applications. We expect that combinations of these building blocks and their controlled self-assembly can generate the discovery of innovative biomaterials with unprecedented properties that can revolutionize tissue engineering and other forms of regenerative medicine.

Dr Boek

Dr Edo Boek PhD

Reader in Chemical Engineering
Setting up a new research group and Division of Chemical Engineering with focus on energy engineering. My research is in soft matter, energy, flow and transport of complex fluids in confinement (porous media), multi-scale imaging and simulation. I investigate how the macroscopic behaviour of complex systems emerges from the underlying microscopic behaviour. I have a solid research track record in two-phase and reactive flow in porous media, with applications in clean fossil fuels, CO2 storage and asphaltene deposition. In my new role at QMUL, I will be extending these applications to renewable energy, battery design, fuel cells and supercapacitors. I develop both experimental and computational methods for my research. Experimental methods include micro-fluidics, (confocal) microscopy, rheology and X-ray micro-tomography. Computer simulation methods include lattice-Boltzmann, Multi-Particle Collision Dynamics, and Molecular Dynamics. I am currently hiring a PhD student in this area. Please contact me for details.

Dr Botto

Dr Lorenzo Botto PhD

Senior Lecturer (equiv. Associate Professor) in Fluid Mechanics
I am the leader of the Fluids, Particles and Interfaces Group (https://bottogroup.wordpress.com/). I am interested in fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, with particular focus on topics at the interface between classical fluid dynamics and materials science. My group uses simulations and theory, often corroborated by experimental results, to develop fundamental engineering principles that can be applied to practical problems in areas such as materials processing, biengineering, pharmaceuticals and energy engineering. Recurring topics of research in the group are the dynamics of particulate materials (suspensions, emulsions, powders, etc.) and the mechanics of soft interfaces. I lead the "Fluid Mechanics of Nanostructured Materials" Special Interest Group of the EPSRC-funded UK Fluids Network.

Dr Buchan

Dr Andrew Buchan BSc MSc PhD

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.

I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanisms behind enhanced bone healing or regeneration in the presence of porous synthetic scaffolds, known as synthetic bone graft substitutes, via manipulation of both synthetic graft chemistry and hierarchical pore structure. I also have extensive experience in translating research from the bench to the bed side through my involvement in the successful development and commercialisation of a progressive series of synthetic bone graft substitute materials with tuneable hierarchical structures to support rapid, reliable bone regeneration, which are now in global clinical use in a range of applications including trauma, joint revision and spine surgery.

I am particularly interested in understanding how and why they get injured, and looking at 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.
