On 8-9 April 2019, UCL Chemical Engineering and the Centre for Nature Inspired Engineering (CNIE) participated at an exciting ChemEngDayUK event in Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh.

UCL Chemical Engineering and the CNIE scooped four prizes at the event and the winners included:

  • Kaiqiao Wu (PhD student with Marc-Olivier Coppens) for the Best Presentation in the Particle systems session
  • Ioannis Gkioulekas (PhD student with Lazaros Papageorgiou) for the Best Presentation in the Modelling session
  • Luca Panariello (Marie-Curie trainee with Paolo Lettieri) for the Best Presentation in the Reactions, Catalysts and Kinetics session
  • Giovanni Meridiano (PhD student with Panagiota Angeli and Luca Mazzei) Runner up in the Poster competition

Also at the event, Marc-Olivier Coppens gave a Plenary Presentation on Nature-Inspired Chemical Engineering: A Transformative Methodology for Innovation, and there were several presentations by the NICE group, including Halan Mohamed (Kidney Inspired Membranes with Superior Anti-Fouling Properties), Kaiqiao Wu (Dynamically Structured Fluidised Beds: A way to control bubbling flows) and Mohammad Alkhunaizi (Effects of Surface Barriers in Hierarchical Zeolites).

Congratulations to the winners and for all those who took part.
