Senior Research Assoicate in the Computational Modelling Group.

The research interests of the group lie in the development and application of modern mathematical techniques to address challenges posed by the energy transition. These challenges require models, data and analysis that span a broad range of scientific domains.

My activities include both experimental and model-based research, ranging from the investigation of biofuels, to fundamental aspects of soot formation (soot is a major contributor to global warming), to the synthesis of novel materials for green energy applications, to the development of cross-domain modelling capabilities based on the use of knowledge graphs, ontologies and autonomous computational agents to help to reduce energy consumption and harmful emissions.
