Institute of Particle Science and Engineering School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Dr S. Joseph Antony is Associate Professor at the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Leeds, U.K. He started his research career as an experimentalist in the area of photonic stress analysis and strength measurement of continuum bodies. However, over the past decade, his research focus is on the nano mechanical and micro mechanical modelling of particles and their roles in structural assemblies with particular emphasis on structure-property relations. His current research interests include Particulate Mechanics (MD, DEM,FEM Modelling): Nano, micro and macroscopic properties of powders and grains, Force transmission patterns in particulate materials subjected to mechanical, electrical and combined loading conditions, Strength of nano particulate composites, Developing composites for constructions from municipal wastes, Self-assembly and disassembly behaviour of mineral particulates, Sensing stresses in soft matter including human eye, Industrial productivity, and Equality and diversity issues in engineering research.
