Malvern Instruments rheology specialist wins award for doctorate

Malvern, UK | Posted on December 10th, 2009

Malvern Instruments Product Technical Specialist for Rheology, Dr. John Duffy, has been awarded the prestigious Vernon Harrison doctoral prize given annually by the British Society of Rheology (BSR). He will receive his award, and give his award lecture, at the BSR Midwinter Meeting at the University of Edinburgh's School of Physics and Astonomy, Edinburgh, Scotland, on 14-15 December 2009.

Dr Mike Kaszuba, Malvern's Technical Specialist Supervisor said:

"This is a superb achievement. John was awarded his Doctor of Philosophy degree in November 2008 from the University of Nottingham for his work on rheological studies of the microstructure of molten coal as it undergoes carbonisation. By then, Malvern had already snapped him up. Known for the high calibre of our in-house scientific specialists, we recognized the importance of the rheological expertise and industrial experience that John brings to the company and the benefits for our customers."

The Vernon Harrison award is presented for "the most original and significant contribution to any branch of rheological research leading to the award of a PhD degree in a given academic year". John Duffy's award winning thesis is entitled: ‘Understanding the Mechanisms Behind Coking Pressure: Relationship to Pore Structure and Thermoplastic Properties.'

After receiving his BSc (Hons) Applied Chemistry from Liverpool's John Moores University, John Duffy's PhD studies followed more than seven years in industry at Unilever and Boots.

About Malvern Instruments
Malvern Instruments provides a range of complementary materials characterization tools that deliver inter-related measurements reflecting the complexities of particulates and disperse systems, nanomaterials and macromolecules. Analytical instruments from Malvern are used in the characterization of a wide variety of materials, from industrial bulk powders to nanomaterials and delicate macromolecules. A broad portfolio of innovative technologies is combined with intelligent, user-friendly software. These systems deliver industrially relevant data enabling our customers to make the connection between micro (such as particle size) and macro (bulk) material properties (rheology) and chemical composition (chemical imaging).

Particle size, particle shape, zeta potential, molecular weight, chemical composition and rheological properties measurements are now joined by advanced chromatography solutions (GPC/SEC), extending Malvern’s technologies for protein molecular weight, size and aggregation measurements, and synthetic polymer molecular weight and distribution. The company’s laboratory, at-line, on-line and in-line solutions are proven in sectors as diverse as cement production and pharmaceutical drug discovery.

Headquartered in Malvern, UK, Malvern Instruments has subsidiary organizations in all major European markets, North America, China, Korea and Japan, a joint venture in India, a global distributor network and applications laboratories around the world.
