I am currently enrolled in a PhD degree under the supervision of Dr. Woei Saw and Prof. Peter Ashman. My research interests are on the application of bio-fuels in thermal conversion processes including gasification, combustion and dual fluidized bed (DFB) gasification. My current research focuses on the understanding of bed agglomeration mechanism and agglomeration tendency of low-cost agricultural waste under DFB gasification conditions. The information obtained is important to mitigate bed agglomeration problems arisen from agricultural waste with high ash contents and therefore efficient utilization of agricultural waste in DFB gasifiers.
