Laurence Weatherley


Laurence Weatherley is the Albert P Learned Distinguished Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Kansas. Weatherley received his PhD from the University of Cambridge in Chemical Engineering for research on ion exchange kinetics in macroporous resins. He has published over 250 research papers, articles, conference papers and other contributions. Dr Weatherley is a chartered professional engineer (UK), is a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, United Kingdom, and is a Fellow of the Institution of Professional Engineers of New Zealand. He also holds a visiting Professorship at the Lodz University of Technology, Poland. His research interests are in the area of environmental process engineering and green chemical engineeringwith a focus on the intensification of chemical reaction and separation processes involving liquid mixtures and solid/ liquid mixtures. Process intensification is the development of small, highly efficient methods of processing which take up less space, use smaller amounts of hazardous chemicals, and are suited to the application of new “green” chemistry.
