Auty (Food Chemistry and Technology Department, Teagasc, Moorepark, Fermoy, Co. Cork, Ireland)

Career

2013 – Present – Postdoctoral Researcher in Energy Storage and Semiconductor Technology Research Group

2011 – 2013 – (Part-time) Teaching Assistant in Department of Physics and Energy, University of Limerick, Ireland

2006 – 2011 – Teagasc Walsh Fellow and Postgraduate Research Student in National Food Imaging Centre within Food Chemistry and Technology Department, Teagasc, Moorepark, Fermoy, Co. Cork, Ireland and Materials and Surface Science Institute, University of Limerick, Limerick, Ireland

 2001 – 2006 – Technical Officer, VCR, Pordenone, Italy

Research Interests

My research is focused on physical and chemical characterization of various colloidal liquid systems from the stability of the electrolyte for Vanadium Redox Flow Batteries (developed in Energy Storage and Semiconductor Technology Research Group) to protein denaturation, aggregation and gel formation in protein dispersions as influenced by various factors like temperature, pressure, concentration, pH, ionic strength, the role of various organic and inorganic additives etc. Studying the colloidal dispersions and the aggregation/precipitation/crystallization processes includes in-situ and/or real-time analysis using various techniques like pH, titration, electrophoresis, rheology, particle size and zeta potential measurements and UV-VIS, fluorescence and ATR-FTIR spectroscopy while the resulting solid precipitates are investigated using XRD, optical, atomic force and scanning electron microscopy.
