I joined LSBU in 2021, where I am a lecturer in the Division of Chemical and Energy Engineering in the School of Engineering. I hold a BEng and a MSc in Chemical Engineering and obtained my PhD from the University of Birmingham. Before joining LSBU, I worked as a Research Fellow at the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham. I also worked in R&D in the chemical industry, in the UK and abroad, for several years.

Having worked in both, industry and academia, it provided me with a wide range of subject areas of interest. Driven by the need of solving some of the most pressing challenges we are facing as a society, such as plastic waste pollution and global warming, my main research interests are on green and sustainable chemistry and engineering, chemical recycling, renewable energy, lithium-ion batteries and applied thermodynamics.
