CPACT is delighted to welcome the
University of Cambridge to the consortium.
Axel Zietler said “I hold
the chair in Microstructure Engineering at the Department of Chemical
Engineering and Biotechnology at the University of Cambridge. In my research, I
am interested in how the performance of porous materials and liquids is
affected by the physical structure of such materials over a range of length
scales from molecular interaction to millimetre structures. The vast majority
of applications I study are in the pharmaceutical industry and heterogeneous
catalysis. My unique capability in this research is the means of terahertz
spectroscopy and imaging, which I have pursued for the past two decades,
starting with my PhD.
This is the core
expertise I can bring to complement the skills of existing members in CPACT. In
addition, I am also a co-director of the EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a
Healthy and Sustainable Future (https://cdt.sensors.cam.ac.uk/),
which provides training for doctoral students in all aspects sensor-related,
including those relevant to the process industries, the data analysis methods,
etc. This activity builds upon a previously existing network called
CamBridgeSens, which brings together the sensor enthusiasts in Cambridge across
the academic, large industrial and startup communities”.

We look forward to working with them.
