Dr Luigi Capozzi

Lecturer in Chemical Engineering

Luigi Capozzi

Engineering Building



Research overview

My research aims to bridge the gap between micro-mechanics at the particle level and complex industrial-scale processes, and create multi-scale modelling frameworks that can address industrial challenges and provide solutions for designing and optimizing powder processing equipment and processes. My research is mainly focused on:

  • Multi-scale modelling and simulation of processes and materials (Computation Fluid Dynamics, Discrete element method, Population balance modelling, Heat and mass transfer models)
  • Pharmaceutical processes
  • Simulation of solid-fluid systems
  • Digital Twins of industrial-scale processes

PhD supervision

PhD, MSc and BSc self-funded projects are welcome regarding solid-fluid multiphase systems, CFD-DEM modelling and simulation, simulation of microplastics, biopharmaceutical process and drug-delivery technologies, heat and mass transfer
