Research themes

Hydrocarbon Recovery:

Interaction between chemical reaction, diffusion of heat and mass, and convection, in both industrial and environmental flows

Carbon Capture, Storage & Use:

Interaction between chemical reaction, diffusion of heat and mass, and convection, in both industrial and environmental flows

Engines and Turbines:

The interaction between chemical reaction, diffusion of heat and mass, and convection, in both industrial and environmental flows, ranging from the small to the large scales; with a particular interest in flows where buoyancy forces are important, arising from temperature, concentration, and chemical or phase changes.

Sustainable Chemical Conversions:

The interaction between chemical reaction, diffusion of heat and mass, and convection, in both industrial and environmental flows, ranging from the small to the large scales

Research Interests

The interaction between chemical reaction, diffusion of heat and mass, and convection, in both industrial and environmental flows, ranging from the small to the large scales; with a particular interest in flows where buoyancy forces are important, arising from temperature, concentration, and chemical or phase changes. Generally, a combination of experimental techniques, such as Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Infra-red Spectroscopy, colourimetry and densitometry is used. The processes are modelled using scaling, asymptotic and perturbation analytical techniques, complemented by computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
