My research revolves around the development of novel materials and membranes, and their application in energy and environmental related technologies, with a particular focus on hydrogen applications.
Most recently I have worked on the use of metal organic frameworks, zeolitic imidazolate frameworks, and porous aromatic frameworks as novel gas sorbents and as components of composite membrane systems. We are particularly interested in highly novel applications of post-synthetically modified MOF particles, in membranes, adsorbent systems and fundamental studies of molecular transport through porous materials.
My teaching interests are focused on the use of blended learning approaches, specifically including high-quality educational videos, to enhance chemical engineering education.
In April 2022 I was called to the Paul Wurth Chair in Energy Process Engineering at the University of Luxembourg. I remain a Visiting Professor at Imperial College London and plan to develop deeper teaching and research connections in the coming years.
