PhD projects

Andrzej Pacek’s research interests in the area of energy and chemical industries include multiphase systems, nanofluids (manufacturing), stability, rheology, heat transfer and catalytic decomposition of sustainable feedstocks. His work in the field of speciality products, meanwhile, focuses on nanofluids, de-agglomeration of nano-powders, multiphase reactors and liquid interactions.

Professor Pacek is interested in supervising doctoral research in the following areas:

Simultaneous characterisation of morphology and rheology of complex multiphase products
Effect of catalyst particles on bubble size and overall reaction rate in mixed solvents in heterogeneous reactors at elevated pressure and temperature
Concurrent product process design using rotor stator devices
Solid-gas-liquid interfaces in multiphase catalitical reactors
Lignosulphate as a source of fine chemicals
