Josh graduated from Loughborough University with a 1st class MEng in Chemical Engineering in 2015. As part of his undergraduate course, Josh spent a year working for GlaxoSmithKline as part of the Oral Solid Dose engineering team, working on a variety of unit processes. Josh also did a semester abroad at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, where he completed a short research project on the mechanisms of nucleation in granulation.
Josh's research looks at understanding the mechanisms of liquid spreading in tumbling drums, with a specific interest in the spray coating of powdered detergents. He uses a novel image analysis technique to quantify liquid contact spreading between particles, whilst varying parameters such as liquid viscosity, drum size, rotational speed, powder density and powder size distributions. His recent work studies the formation of agglomerates in tumbling drums and equates this to coating variability. Josh is sponsored by both Procter & Gamble and SCI.
