Mr Peter Vanya joined the group as a MPhil student. He obtained his BSc in theoretical physics from Imperial College. His project is funded jointly by EPSRC and Johnson Matthey with the aim of understanding interactions in fuel cells. He will focus on multiscale modelling of ionomer-catalyst interactions in fuel cells.
Dr Chunlei Pei joined the group as a postdoctoral research associate. He obtained his PhD from University of Birmingham, focusing on numerical analysis of electrostatics in particle systems. He is currently carrying out research on spray coating processes of pharmaceutical tablets and pellets using multi-scale numerical methods and collaborating with experimental methods, e.g. Terahertz spectroscopy and optical coherence tomography.
