Research interests

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
