Engineering and Lucy Cavendish College
Fluid Mechanics, Digital Printing, Airflows, Deposition, System Integration
I was trained as an Engineer and did a PhD focused on the instabilities of liquid jets to produce encapsulating devices for biological ingredients.
My interest in the properties of liquids and their behaviour grew immensely during that stage and, after finishing my PhD I became a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Engineering to work on liquid and air flows applied to manufacturing techniques, especially digital printing.
My research interests span from interfacial and complex flows to deposition and surface wettability through visualization techniques and various other experimental and numerical approaches to analyse droplet and jet flows at the milli and microscale.
I also study ways to integrate these phenomena into larger systems, using industrial printing devices, robotics and principles of scale up with the aim of understand flows and improve the manufacturing of new materials for sensing, civil and healthcare applications.
