    About me

    I received my PhD (1999) degree in Chemical Engineering from Sydney University, Australia. Prior to joining Murdoch University in 2009, I have been appointed as Postdoctoral Research Fellow Discipline of Chemical Engineering at James Cook University, Curtin Univesity, University of Western Sydney and Food Science Australia, CSIRO Sydney. Over the last 15 years I have been participating in teaching, tutoring and developing course materials for Undergraduate and Master courses. I have excellent experience in teaching these Engineering courses: Process Dynamic Modelling Optimisation and Control, Process Systems Engineering, Food Process Engineering as well as some practical couses such as Laboratory Quality Management. My research interests are based on crystallisation, membrane filtration, membrane distillation, desalination and chromatography processes and specially on operability, controlability studies of applications in sugar, dairy and mineral industries.
