My current research looks specifically at questions involving carbon capture and storage process. In particular I am studying the thermodynamic properties of CO2 mixtures relevant to carbon dioxide storage as well as enhance oil and gas production. In an earlier step of my postdoctoral career I have worked in the functionalization of materials in supercritical fluids for applications in CO2 capture or catalysis.  Moreover, during my PhD, I conducted fundamental and applied research on supercritical fluids in the field of Green Chemistry.
