Personal profile

Research Statement

Dr. Justin YW Tian, BEng (Honour), MSc, PhD, is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Pharmaceutical Engineering Group, Queen’s University Belfast and Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow (2019/20). He has completed his bachelor degree in the area of Macromolecular Materials and Engineering from Beijing Institute of Technology (2006), MSc in Process Engineering (2008) and PhD in Drug Delivery (2012). 

Dr Tian's research seeks to resolve several scientific problems of fundamental and economic significance that have strong pharmaceutical formulation design and process engineering aspects. They ranged from development of novel formulations (amorphous solid dispersion, nanoparticles) for continuous manufacturing, to the implementation of suitable analytical technologies and modelling. The interdisciplinary nature of the research requires both fundamental understanding of the underpinning principles and the development of process-embedded formulation innovations.




Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellow: 



Contributed to teaching in both MPharm, BSc and China Queen's Colleges covering areas including:

pharmaceutical technology, advanced drug delivery, regulatory, process analysis technology and predictive modelling.
