Umang received his Masters in Chemical Engineering from Gujarat University, India and worked as a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at L.D. College of Engineering for 5 years before pursuing a PhD in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London. Umang has developed surface preferential approaches for nucleation and crystallisation of biological and complex organic molecules. More recently, he has worked as a Research Associate investigating the role of surface properties on particle-particle interaction and developed approaches for decoupling contribution of different surface attributes on powder cohesion. In 2012, as recognition to his contributions to Undergraduate laboratory teaching, he was been nominated for the Graduate Teaching Assistant Awards for the Faculty of Engineering. Umang currently has a role in leading the operation and innovation of the teaching laboratories.
