Personal profile


Enes Šupuk is a Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield. He graduated in Chemical Engineering from the University of Leeds in 2005, and subsequently obtained a PhD from the same university in 2009 under the supervision of Professor Mojtaba Ghadiri. He then worked for Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS) in collaborative partnership with the University of Leeds for two years before joining the University of Huddersfield in 2011 as a Research Fellow. His research focused on investigating the scope for direct compression for tableting and variability of the dosage forms by developing an electrostatic portfolio for BMS in-house compounds.

Enes's current research activities focus on understanding the electrostatic phenomena in particulate systems. He also contributes to undergraduate chemical engineering course teaching chemical engineering design, multiphase systems and particle technology.
