Nadine is a final year doctoral researcher at Imperial College of London in the Chemical Engineering department. She works under the supervision of Professor Martin Trusler and Dr. Kyra Campbell. Nadine graduated MEng in Chemical Engineering with Business Management as a minor from the University of Birmingham. Her PhD research focuses on the performance of aqueous-amine solvents for carbon capture from flue gases and similar streams. It is ultimately aimed at facilitating the selection of improved solvent blends for more cost-effective and environmentally benign carbon capture processes. In detail, the project involves a fundamental study of the kinetics of carbon dioxide absorption and the interplay of chemical-reaction and mass-transfer rates in controlling the overall capture rate which, in turn, is a key driver for the process economics. Nadine has gained both industry and academic experience throughout her career by working with global companies and completing various research internships at world-class universities. She is also involved in projects relating to the implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage in industry and sustainability in fashion.
Nadine sits on several internal committees and the L&SE Young Members Forum IChemE. She joined the L&SE Young Members Forum in 2020 as University Representative Coordinator. In addition, she was the communications manager in the National Young Members Committee in the IChemE. She is also a member of the Institute of Chemical Engineers and is involved in roles that are actively supporting diversity in STEM and outreach.
