Dr. Des O’Grady leads METTLER TOLEDO’s in process particle characterization group in North America. He has been with METTLER TOLEDO for 5 years and has extensive experience working with scientists and engineers in a range of industries on their particle characterization projects. He has supported the pharmaceutical, chemical and petrochemical industries in Europe, Asia and Latin America and is currently based in New York where he supports North East America, Canada, Puerto Rico and Brazil. Des graduated from the School of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering at University College Dublin, Ireland with a B.E. in Chemical Engineering in 2002. He completed his PhD at the same school in 2006.His PhD thesis, entitled “Multi-Scale Characterization of Anti-solvent Crystallization”, focused on the use of in situ particle characterization technologies and novel modeling approaches to design, characterize and scale-up anti-solvent crystallization. Des is a recognized expert in the world-wide crystallization and particle science communities. He is a regular contributor at international conferences and is a regularly published author on these and other topics.
