Thomas Rodgers joined the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at The University of Manchester in January 2013. He previously worked at Durham University as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate as a member of the Biophysical Sciences Institute, focusing on the super-coarse-grain modelling of protein and ligand binding. Prior to this, he graduated with a PhD in Chemical Engineering from The University of Manchester in 2011 funded by EPSRC and Unilever. His PhD focused on the processing and manufacture of formulated products.
His current research focuses on the development of manufacturing formulated products. He is interested in understanding how to take a product from laboratory/development scale through to production scale. He is developing and using advanced analytical techniques such as tomographic imaging to better understand – and thus improve – the manufacturing process at all scales.
Thomas’ research also examines how the manufacturing process affects the final product structure, and how this can be exploited for improvement of end products. He is currently engaged in active collaborations with both academic and industrial partners.
