Academic Biography

Amin Farshchi is a Lecturer in Food Sciences, joined the Department in August 2020. Amin received his Ph.D. in Chemical and Process Engineering (2018) at the University of Leeds (Leeds, United Kingdom).  His PhD project was in collaboration with Procter & Gamble, which aimed to provide a better fundamental understanding of the relationship between the slurry formulation and structure and functional properties of spray-dried detergent powders. He then did Post-Doctoral Research at the University of Leeds, and Pfizer’s company (Sandwich, Kent, UK).
