Lande gained his PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of Sheffield in 2004. He was then employed by the same university as a research associate to carry out a further research as extended from his PhD study on kinetic theory with population balance for particulate systems. During his time working in Sheffield, Lande also undertook PhD supervision and teaching duties. He also has an MEng Degree in Chemical Engineering and two undergraduate degrees in Applied Mathematics and Chemistry. Lande’s teaching and research experiences initially began when he worked in Tsinghua University in Beijing from 1997 to 1999 before he started his PhD research in Sheffield. It is worth mentioning, during his pursuit of PhD in 2002, funded by Unilever Vlaardingen Research Laboratory in the Netherlands, Lande had an enjoyable six month study and work experience in the Department of Chemical Engineering in Twente University carrying out a research project collaborated between Sheffield and Twente universities on coupling population balance modelling and computational fluid dynamics for gas fluidised bed granulation systems.
In 2005, Lande took up a research fellowship in Leeds University to investigate the application of some advanced measurement techniques including light scattering, ultrasound and electrical resistance tomography to high concentration submicron and nanoparticle systems. During the time he worked in Leeds, he also carried out extensively statistical data analysis and population balance modelling of colloidal nano systems for process understanding and product and process quality control. The teaching involved in his time in Leeds was mainly a postgraduate subject on population balance modelling of particulate systems.
In late 2008, he became a consultant in a consultancy business in Leeds mainly responsible for the application of particle technology in chemical industries; and in late 2010, he joined the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science of the University of Manchester as a Lecturer.
