Dr. Ketan Pancholi is a lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at Robert Gordon University. He has combined experience of 15 years in industry and academia. Previously, he worked in area of materials, materials modelling and structure-fluid interaction as a professional engineer in Investment casting manufacturing unit and oil and Gas Company. To date, he has supervised one PhD, three MSc by research and several MSc thesis to completion. He is a member chartered engineer of Institute of Mechanical Engineers, UK since 2010.
Duties and Responsibilities
Teaching 2nd, 3rd and 4th Year BEng/MEng Engineering.
MSc and PhD Mechanical Engineering.
Dr Pancholi studies the synthetic and natural soft condensed material. The work spans understanding fundamental science to direct applications. He works at multiple scales of materials. At nano scale, he manipulates the interfacial short range forces between nanoparticles, bubbles and droplets to create materials of desired mechanical, electrical, optical and other properties of interest. At large scale, he models and predicts the material properties of flexible risers or complex composite structures. He uses mathematical and experimental approach in his quest.
