Dr Timothy Hunter

University of Leeds

Professional/research interests:
My general research interest is in multiphase suspension and slurry processing, froth flotation, process intensification of particle processes, ion-exchange for heavy metal and dye removal for water and effluent treatments, structure-property relationships of multiphase products, as well as interfacial colloidal and soft matter systems.

I have current projects on acoustic and other novel in situ/online characterisation techniques; production of responsive latex particles and emulsion template colloidasomes; structure-property relationships of complex liquid based chemical products; sediment erosion, dispersion and settling; bubble network formation in cohesive sediments; process intensificaiton of ion-exchange systems for removal of heavy metals and dyes from liquid effluents.
