Personal profile

Research interests

The energy transition to a low-carbon future will require developing renewable alternatives that remain both economically and performance competitive with existing materials. My research focuses on technology to enable a circular, bio-based economy, namely catalysis for renewable plastic production and recycling. I currently work at the interface between chemistry and engineering with the overall aim of overcoming inevitable barriers to adoption within industry, thus accelerating both the uptake and implementation of renewable technology.
