I am a Senior lecturer in the School of Engineering, Division of Chemical and Energy Engineering. I joined LSBU in 2011 with a progressive career as academic and researcher. I have performed in different roles: Course Director, Module leader and Academic Integrity Coordinator.

I am passionate about the teaching and learning in higher education and research based learning.

My current research interests focus on porous media flow and physical-chemical interactions, as CEOR with carbon dioxide and enhanced geothermal systems.

I am also working in the study of macromolecules for high salinity and high temperature applications.

Peer reviewer (SPE and for HEA fellowship applications at LSBU).

Accreditation and Approvals Panel member for the Energy Institute (from 2021),

Society of Petroleum Engineering SPE Student Chapters Liaison (2019-2021).

Society of Petroleum Engineering SPE Mentor.
