Research Summary

Research Interests: Chemical and Catalytic Reactor Engineering, Microreaction Technology, Process intensification, Nanomaterials Flow Synthesis, Smart Advanced Manufacturing

My group is working on the development of single and multiphase continuous flow reactors, using advanced experimental methodologies and reactor modelling tools. Our approach is based on fundamental understanding and evaluation of chemical and catalytic reactions and their interaction with hydrodynamics, mass and heat transfer. We utilise microstructured reactors to intensify generation of kinetic and mechanistic information and millifluidic reactors to improve the production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals and nanomaterials in terms of robustness, sustainability and product quality. The reactors have been used to perform various reactions such as catalytic oxidations, hydrogenations, epoxidations, ozonolysis and nanomaterials synthesis. We collaborate with chemists, microbiologists, pharmacists and other engineers to ensure the products fulfil the requirements for the intended applications, which recently have included gold nanoclusters for antimicrobial surfaces and iron oxide nanoparticles for cancer hyperthermia.
