PhD Student in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London, specialising in molecular thermodynamics and process engineering in the net-zero context with proven research record in experimental and modelling work within both academia and industry.
Expected date of graduation: Q1/2021. Link to Patrick's LinkedIn Profile
Patrick is specialising in molecular thermodynamics and process engineering in the net-zero context. He is pursuing a PhD in techno-economic assessment and multi-scale modelling of solvent-based CO2 capture processes (see figure for a recent highlight of Patrick's work). He leads international research collaborations and consulted major companies in the field of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS).Patrick Brandl is a PhD student within the Centre for Process System Engineering (CPSE), the Centre for Environmental Policy (CEP), and the Clean Fossil Fuel and Bioenergy Research Group (CleanFaB) at the Imperial College London.
He earned both his Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering and Master’s degree in Chemical Process Technology from the Technical University of Munich. Patrick is an Associate Member of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, an Early Career Research member at the UK CCS Research Centre, and a student member at the Energy Institute. He participates in IChemE's Future Energy Leaders programme.
Patrick is a keen squash player representing Imperial at the highest BUCS level and leads the Rackets Cubed programme at Imperial.
