    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • My role can be split up into office and lab work or a bit of both day-to-day. In the office I reply to the emails, sit on the meetings regarding new projects and write reports. In the lab I carry out experiments regarding particle size, shape or other physical and chemical properties, using techniques such as pXRD, DSC, NIR and others.
