Eirini Goudeli is Lecturer of Chemical Engineering at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She has a Diploma from University of Patras, Greece and PhD from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Her research is focusing on synthesis of nanoparticles by gas-phase methods and multiscale modeling of particle formation and growth by interfacing molecular dynamics simulations, mesoscale models and population balance equations. Gas-phase methods, such as flame spray pyrolysis, are used routinely for commercial synthesis of nanostructured particles (e.g. fumed silica, pigmentary titania, carbon black, Ni) as well as for advanced materials (e.g. photocatalysts, nanofluids and biomaterials). This systematic approach to study particle formation can offer significant insight into fundamental physical principles and mechanisms that may be exploited by chemical industry and nanotechnology.
