PhD projects

Serafim Bakalis's research spans a range of engineering-related aspects with an emphasis on understanding the effect of processing on microstructure control, as well as the extension of traditional unit operations to include performance of formulations of various consumer products. He is currently the Principal Investigator of an EPSRC/DTI-funded project aiming at delivering low-salt products without compromising their sensory attributes.

Dr Bakalis can supervise doctoral research in:

Use of positron emission particle tracking (PEPT) to investigate mixing processes
Characterisation of thermal processes using time temperature integrators
Usage and development of X-Ray microCT in understanding the effect of formulation and processing in porous structures
Modelling the performance of complex microstructures in the mouth
Electroencephalography-based investigation of sensory responses to consumption of food
