Imperial College London (ICL) was developing next generation of modelling tools that could handle fast & small-scale phenomena that with UCL we experimentally challenged them with, as well as large-scale & slow ones done by Nottingham. Outcome: too ambitious for single software to manage complex multiphase flows (at least within the time I worked with them :)

I was a part of a world’s largest collaborative project for the research and development of nanofluid coolants. This EU project comprised of 12 leading European companies (e.g. Siemens) and research centres (e.g. KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm) to develop cooling system for a range of industrial applications: NANOHEX (www.nanohex.org)
Thesis title: "Bubbles – catalysts – oil interactions at elevated temperature and pressure in Fischer Tropsch synthesis" funded by Johnson & Matthey
Tired with silly methods for getting porous particles contact angle as an indicator to particles attachment, I came up with purely theoretical way of finding it out, and so I designed GC columns to get particles energies and successfully got predictions experimentally validated.
Getting gas-liquid-solid interactions right reduces mass transfer limitations in multiphase system.
