Highlights

 

Winner of the EFCE Young Researcher Award in Mixing 2015

 


Dr. Cláudio António Pereira da Fonte

was awarded the
EFCE Young  Researcher Award in Mixing 2015


for his outstanding PhD Thesis on

"Mixing Studies with Impinging Jets:
PIV/PLIF Experiments and CFD Simulation
",

completed at the Laboratory of Separation and Reaction Engineering at the University of Porto, Portugal, under the supervision of Professor José Carlos Lopes and Dr. Ricardo Santos.

ClaudioFonte 

 

Cláudio António Pereira da Fonte completed his PhD thesis in the field of mixing in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Porto, Portugal. He currently holds the position of research engineer at IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN), France.
Dr. Fonte’s work focused on mixing in Confined Impinging Jets (CIJs); an alternative method to conventional mixing in stirred tanks. His thesis, which provides a better understanding of this mixing method for laminar flow, also identified mixing mechanisms and flow regimes in CIJs.

Dr. Fonte was awarded the Young Researcher Award in Mixing 2015 at the 15th European Conference on Mixing, which was held in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, from 28 June – 3 July.


 

Winner of the EFCE Young Researcher Award in Mixing 2012

 


Dr. Sebastian Maass

was awarded the
EFCE Young  Researcher Award in Mixing 2012


for his outstanding PhD Thesis on

"Experimental analysis, modeling and simulation of drop breakage in agitated turbulent liquid/liquid-dispersions",

completed at TU Berlin under the supervision of Professor Matthias Kraume.

Sebastian Maass obtained his diploma in energy engineering and chemical processing and his PhD in Chemical & Process Engineering from TU Berlin. Sebastian's PhD work focussed on drop break-up phenomena in agitated liquid-liquid dispersions and the development of physical models. This area is highly relevant to applications in the process industries, including bituminous road surfacing products, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products. Through his research, Sebastian has acquired expertise in experimental techniques (drop-size measurement, PIV, etc), numerical simulations (CFD) and modelling. His work has also led to the patenting of a particle size measurement technique and the start-up of the company SOPATec.
He is currently CEO of SOPATec UG, Berlin, which specialises in the analysis of particulate systems. In this framework he is working on a number of research projects in the field of multiphase mixing.

The award was presented in Warsaw, Poland on 10 September 2012 at the 14th European Conference on Mixing.
