Design and analysis of energy systems:
- Bioenergy systems and technologies.
- Urban Energy Systems.
- Modelling and optimisation of low carbon technologies and systems (e.g. CCS, hydrogen infrastrucutre etc).
Supply chain design and optimisation:
- Development of new algorithms for large scale supply chain models.
- Application to sector-specific processes (e.g. pharmaceuticals, oil and gas, consumer goods)
Process synthesis and development for fine chemicals, pharmaceutical and biochemical processes:
- Combination of chemistry with modelling and engineering to improve process designs and to speed up process development.
- Performing rapid economic assessments for different manufacturing routes.
- Developing long-term capacity and investment plans.
Safety in design and operation, especially the application of formal mathematical techniques to assess and improve process safety
