I have developed a number of novel and leading edge methods for determining a range of surface and bulk physicochemical properties of powders and particulate materials including mechanical, topographical, chromatographic and surface properties. Recent studies have included studies of protein aggregation, protein crystallisation and freeze drying. The Surfaces and Particle Engineering Laboratory (SPEL) group has world leading expertise in gravimetric charactisation methods as well as inverse chromatographic methods, having pioneered many of these approaches.
