I joined Aston University in April 2016, as a Programme Director for work-based, degree programmes in Energy Systems and Utilities within the Aston Professional Engineering Centre (APEC), in partnership with key employers in the UK Energy sector, including National Grid, SSE, Western Power Distribution and Scotia Gas Networks (SGN).
My background is in bioenergy and biofuel research, having completed my PhD at the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI), where I also worked on a variety of bioenergy research projects including thermochemical conversion technologies, as well as the upgrading, characterization and storage stability of bio-fuels.
Following my work at EBRI, I was granted two Marie-Curie Research Fellowships at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, during 2014-2015, working on combustion and emission experimental characterisation of novel and renewable automotive and marine fuels.
In addition to my research experience, since 2015, I have also been working with Mobilenergy LLC, a USA based alternative energy solutions consultancy and process design and procurement company, as a process engineering consultant, and prior to that as a Quality Control Engineer for AspenTech Ltd, in Cambridge, UK.
