Welcome to Xiong-Wei's group
Pursuing excellence in scientific research and technological advancement in mutltiphase mixing and reactions using plug flow oscillatory baffled reactors and crystallizers.
Specialising in flow chemistry that handles solids including crystallization.
PhD opportunitiesThree PhD positions are available from Oct. 2014 within COBRA, two posts will be on crystallisation, one post on polymerisation. Potential candidates should have 2:1 or better in their first degrees in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry or Material Sciences, should send their CVs to Professor Ni in the first instance. For the polymerisation project, a chemistry graduate with experience in polymers is prefered.
