Personal profile

Research interests

My research background and experience are multi-disciplinary blend of Chemical Engineering, Food Bioprocessing, Industrial Engineering and BioAnalytical Chemistry. Currently, I work as a research associate at the Department of Chemical Engineering; contributing to the development of novel foods derived directly from grass, as part of the BBSRC-funded food system project Pasture-to-Plate. Am working to maximise the food potential of UK pasture by converting grass into nutritious edible portions for healthier and more economical alternative meals, hence making UK agriculture more resilient and sustainable.

Teaching interests

Product and process design, chemical engineering principles, separation processes, unit operation, transport phenomena, and thermodynamics are some of the subjects I feel comfortable teaching based on my background and experience in research.
