Significant Employment History

I am the currently the leader of the rheology team at CERAM, dealing with several industrial confidential-based projects and scientific research programmes related to processing of ceramics and other inorganic materials in the slurry state.

Services Offered

I offer advice and consultancy under strict confidentiality. I am happy to advise on all aspects related to liquid-based forming techniques and rheology of suspensions.

Commercial Details

Fee Charging structure and rates

I answer questions which take less than 10 minutes for free. If further work is likely to be of benefit, I will assist you to scope and define this and give you an indication of CERAM's fees for carrying out this work.
