I am currently enrolled in a PhD degree under the supervision of Prof. David Lewis and Dr. Philip van Eyk at the School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials. My research interests include generating clean and sustainable energy, exploring waste-to-energy technologies and developing efficient waste management processes. My current research which encompasses thermochemistry, fluid transport and rheology of multi-phase fluids focusses on the changes in biomass feedstock characteristics before and during hydrothermal liquefaction under sub-critical water conditions during renewable crude-oil production.
