Carl J. Schaschke
Carl Schaschke holds B.S. (1st class), C.N.A.A., and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering. He worked initially for the BNFL, Sellafield, before undertaking a Ph.D. degree. He then joined the Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering at Napier Polytechnic as a Lecturer before transferring to the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Strathclyde. Currently, he is a Reader (Associate Professor) and the Head of the department. He was a recipient of the Royal Academy of Engineering Esso Engineering Teaching Fellowship scheme and a COPUS Media Fellowship with BBC TV's Tomorrow's World based at Television Center, London, turning leading-edge science into popular science television programs. He was a finalist awarded Daily Telegraph's Young Science Writer Award in 1991. Moreover, he was elected to be a chartered engineer in 1992 and a chartered scientist in 2004. He was elected to be a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (FIChemE) in 2005. He has been a member and registered practitioner of the Institute of Learning and Teaching, now a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy since 2000. His principal area of research is high-pressure processing which is an area of increasing worldwide interest impacting on many fields of science and engineering. His work has focused on the influence of extreme pressure (thousands of times greater than atmospheric) on pressure-sensitive products and materials in terms of product and process development. In addition, he is a Member of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE) Working Party on High-Pressure Technology. This organizes and manages a number of related activities including the Intensive Socrates Diploma on High Pressure as well as international conferences and symposia. His teaching includes fluid mechanics, food process engineering, and chemical engineering design. He has authored one book Fluid Mechanics: Worked Examples for Engineers published by IChemE.
