Dr Colin Hare joined the University of Surrey as a lecturer in Chemical Engineering in February 2016. He obtained his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Leeds in 2010, where he developed a method to predict particle breakage during agitated drying of crystallised solids.
Colin’s expertise are in particle technology, where he relates particle properties to process performance, with particular focus on powder flow and particle breakage. He carried out a knowledge transfer secondment to Procter & Gamble during 2014-15, exploring “Advanced Manufacturing Based on the Discrete Element Method”. In 2014 he was awarded a research grant by the International Fine Particle Research Institute (IFPRI) to carry out a “Flowability Assessment of Weakly Consolidated Powders”.
Colin was awarded the Young Researcher of the Year Award at the UK Particle Technology Forum in 2012, and the IChemE Nicklin Medal in April 2016.
