Development of low-carbon, low-cost construction materials.
For my PhD research, I investigate the alkali activation of clays and soils, to make geopolymers and hydrosodalites. These can be used as stabilising phases in earth-based walling materials, with the potential for lower-cost, lower-carbon housing. The intended application is one-storey informally-built housing in urban areas of LEDCs. The aim is to develop a fundamental understanding of which clay minerals and soil types are best suited to geopolymer stabilisation.
