Interdisciplinary Research Centre


Advancing low-carbon and energy-efficient transportation solutions.  Macro-level research:

  • energy use and emissions within the transportation sector, focusing on the lifecycle analysis of vehicles and fuels.
  • The application of first and second law thermodynamic approaches to optimize the production of fuels. 
  • Determining how implementation of new vehicle technologies impact city-scale energy use and greenhouse gas emissions.


Experimental work:

  • The production of novel core-shell nanoparticles for catalytic applications, such as fuel cells and fuel production.
  • Gas-phase nanoparticle synthesis and measurement techniques of composite particle structures.
