      Research Interests

      Senior Research Fellow working on a Centre for Advanced Sustainable Energy (CASE) project on photocatalysis, based at QUB. Previous CASE work has involved techno-economic evaluation of dual fuel 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 development of heterogeneously catalysed reactions. 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 performance and physical structure.


      Teaching has included lectures, tutorials, online tests and examinations.
