Dr Robert Hayes research interests involve the application of finite element computational fluid dynamics techniques to systems involving heat and mass transfer, chemical reactions and porous media. He is currently working on projects involving the modelling of monolith catalytic reactors, the soft roll coating of paper and the mixing in laminar flow. Dr Hayes is a member of the Canadian Society of Chemical Engineering and he is continuing to pursue research in the area of catalytic combustion, collaboratively working with colleagues at the University of Bath.
