Role

Professor Julian Chaudhuri holds BSc(Eng) and PhD degrees in Biochemical Engineering from University College London, and the University of Reading.

His first academic post was as a lecturer in biochemical engineering at the University of Birmingham. In 1991 he joined the University of Bath where he has spent over 20 years teaching, leading research, and in leadership roles as Head of the Department of Chemical Engineering, and Associate Dean (Research) in the Faculty of Engineering & Design. In 2004 he was promoted to Professor of Biochemical & Biomedical Engineering.

Julian’s research is in tissue engineering, at the interface between engineering, biological sciences and medicine - where the most interesting problems exist. Specifically, his work has addressed the development of biodegradable biomaterials and bioreactor systems for stem cell culture and three-dimensional tissue engineering. In 2003 he co-founded Bath's Centre for Regenerative Medicine and served as its Deputy Director for seven years.

In 2014 Julian was appointed as the inaugural Dean of the newly created Faculty of Engineering & Informatics at the University of Bradford. This broad faculty focused on physical, chemical and digital systems covering subjects from chemical engineering to computer science to film and media.

Julian took up his role as Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Education and Student Experience in January 2017.
