Dr Chuan-Yu Wu is a senior lecturer in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham and a member of the academy of Pharmaceutical Science (APS). He was an EPSRC advanced research fellow specialising in the development of multiscale computational models for multiphase particle systems. His research interest lies in particle technology, pharmaceutical engineering, computational mechanics, and numerical modelling and simulations. He is currently leading a research group focusing on the predictive computational modeling of particle systems and particulate flows. Dr. Wu has a strong links with global pharmaceutical industry on the application of advanced computational modeling, including finite element methods, discrete element methods and computational fluid dynamics, and experimental techniques, such as Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT), X-ray micro-computed tomography and nano-indentation, in exploring the fundamental particle science ranging from particle-particle interaction to macroscopic behaviour of particulate systems. At present, he is running collaborative projects with Pfizer, AstraZeneca (PI) and Sanofi Aventis (PI). He has published over 100 scientific papers with an H-index of 12 and is a peer reviewer for more than 20 scientific journals related to particle technology, pharmaceutical engineering and materials sciences. Since 2006, Dr. Wu has organized four national and international meetings in the field of particle technology for promoting the communication and collaborations among the research groups in UK and worldwide.
