Jethro is a senior member of Churchill College and a Senior Research Associate in the CoMo Group, Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology. His research interests lie in the development of computationally efficient methods to model the formation of various nanoparticle products including titanium dioxide, silica and soot; the application of CFD to turbulent chemical reaction problems and the application of modern optimisation techniques for parameter estimation.
In addition to his academic role, Jethro has a part-time position at CMCL Innovations, an engineering company offering software products and technical consulting to the chemical, automotive and energy industries. His main responsibilities include projects in the chemical industries and technical oversight of the research in the company.
Jethro previously worked as a Senior Process Engineer in the Research and Development divisions of AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline and studied in the CoMo group as post-doctoral research associate, a research student and an undergraduate.
