My research involve development of new process designs, energy-efficient process flowsheeting, process modelling, simulation, control and optimization with focus on CO2 capture technologies, energy systems integration and the chemical industry.
I am available for PhD supervision in the wider areas of CO2 capture, energy systems integration and analysis and the chemical industry. Typical topics include but not limited to:
1. Development and analysis of a catalytic regenerator in the context of solvent-based CO2 capture
2. Large scale integration and analysis of a catalytic regenerator in a solvent-based CO2 capture process
3. Modelling and analysis of a solar-assisted combined cycle gas turbine power plant integrated with a solvent-based CO2 capture process.
4. Modelling and analysis of in-situ CO2 conversion to gasoline grade hydrocarbon for mobile emitters
5. Machine learning approach for optimal bidding strategy development for different energy systems
6. Model-based assessment of new materials for pretreating bioenergy feedstocks
7. Novel energy storage technology involving anhydrous ammonia
8. Energy systems integration, analysis and life cycle assessment
