Personal profile

Research interests

My research is on developing, and understanding, sustainable chemical technologies. Particularly I focus on developing porous materials for heterogeneous catalysts, carbon capture and utilisation and also for developing synchrotron-based characterisaton methods to understand these materials and how they behave.


Areas of research that are of particular interest to me at the moment are:

  • Combining CO2 Capture and Utilisation
  • New ways of incorporating Computational Fluid Dynamics into Catalytic Processes
  • Understanding Catalyst Degradation
  • Characterising Materials under Working Reaction Conditions
