transport phenomena, non-ferrous metals
  • Glasgow University (1957)
  • Ph.D., University of Cambridge (1960)
  • F.C.I.C., P.Eng

Dr. Baird's research interests include reciprocating-plate columns, transport phenomena, mixing and the extraction/refining of non-ferrous metals. However he retired in 2000 and he no longer has research funding to support graduate students, internships etc.
