I develop clean energy generation and catalytic processes across length scales and disciplines.
At the nanoscale I design surfaces and control surface chemistry for specific applications, and investigate molecular structure using vibrational spectroscopy. At the microscale I use microfabrication and tomographic techniques to fabricate and interrogate devices. At the macroscale I develop apparatus for in-situ studies of materials under reaction conditions and test their potential in bench-scale reactors. My work is underpinned by a first degree in Chemistry and a second in Chemical Engineering.
Specific fields of interest include carbon capture, utilisation and storage (including air capture and bioenergy), gas separation processes using solid adsorbents and membranes, and the application of controlled surface chemistry in energy related processes of the future.
