Research Interests

Digital Content for Supporting Lab Education Video


Research interests are in Chemical Education, Sustainable Energy and Catalysis. Major focus has been on Lab based Education for Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. The short video above summarises some of this work.


Previous projects related to air pollution/emissions of renewable energy boilers/engines and for the valorisation of residual digestate from Anaerobic Digestion. Other work with Centre for Advanced Sustainable Energy (CASE) has involved methane oxidation technology and the techno-economic evaluation of diesel/methane dual fuel and dedicated methane vehicles via drive cycle modelling.


I have an extensive background in catalysis, at the interface of physical chemistry and engineering. In particular, this research has focused on transient kinetics, mass transfer studies and reaction engineering through the development and application of mass transfer and kinetic models. Research also has focused on the application and development of the temporal analysis of products (TAP) and spatially resolved (Spaci) techniques for the improved understanding of kinetic, mechanistic and dynamic evolution of catalytic processes. Both liquid and gas phase catalytic processes have been investigated, including the valorisation of organic (lignocellulosic) waste products, emission control, selective reductions, carbonylations and catalyst recovery, including the regeneration of precious metal catalysts. I have also investigated correlations between cataltyic performance and physical structure.
