I work at the UK Biochar Research Centre, which is a part of the School of Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh. My role is to lead the research on biochar production technologies and associated processes. Beside this, I also teach the introduction to CO2 capture and transport technologies on the Carbon Capture and Sequestration MSc course

Research Interests

Technologies for biochar production and utilisation of by-products (oil and gas) for bio-fuels and bio-energy generation. Thermochemical conversion of carbonaceous materials (gasification, pyrolysis, combustion, etc.). CO2 capture and transport technologies (post-combustion, pre-combustion, oxy-combustion and advanced capture technologies).
