Dr Hugh Rice

I have been a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering (formerly the School of Process, Environmental and Materials Engineering) at the University of Leeds since 2013, after finishing my Ph.D. studies in the same school. In both positions, my main research interests have been novel acoustic methods for measuring the material and flow properties of multiphase suspensions. Previous to my Ph.D. I worked as an accelerator physicist, with a particular focus on accelerator design and electron beam dynamics, at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), and before that as a higher scientific officer for the Radiation Protection Division of the Health Protection Agency (now part of Public Health England), concentrating on the radiological assessment and remediation of contaminated land and food production systems. My academic background is in physics (M.Phys. Physics with Astrophysics, Leeds) and applied maths (M.Sc. Theoretical and Applied Fluid Dynamics, Manchester).
