Research Summary

I am working as a research fellow on a European project called 'FutuRam' under the supervision of Prof. Julia Stegemann, in Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE), at University College London. It aims to make sense of the available data for flows and properties of one of six waste streams, i.e., fly ash and pyrometallurgical slag, and collaborate with other FutuRaM partners to provide information for MFA and classification of resource recoverability from slags and ashes. Bring together data from a variety of sources for flows, properties, and impacts of slags and ashes, at different scales. Develop coherent strategies for estimating missing data and representing variability and uncertainty. Work with other FutuRaM partners to integrate the collected data into their MFA models. Provide information to other FutuRAM partners for forecasting of future trends in the generation of slags and ashes. Provide information to other FutuRaM partners to support the development of a widely applicable methodology to assess the recoverability of secondary raw materials in alignment with the UNFC for Anthropogenic Resources.

I am currently in my final year of PhD study with the same supervisor in the same department. My research focuses on metal speciation (e.g., Zn and Cu) in the co-processing of industrial wastes in a cement kiln. Since the addition of industrial wastes (air pollution control residues (APCR), metal finishing filter cake (FC) and Pb/Zn smelter slag) bring in high concentrations of toxic metals (e.g., Zn, Pb, Cu, Ni and As), it is important to study their mobility in the co-processed clinker and hydrated cement paste. The mobility of metals is closely linked to their speciation; therefore, studying metal speciation by X-ray absorption spectroscopy can help identify metal mobility well.

Teaching Summary
I co-supervised two MSc projects from 2021-2022. The first MSc project I supervised is 'Zn speciation in Pb/Zn smelter slag by X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy'; the second MSc project is 'Heavy metal distributions in the clinker from co-processing of washed Air Pollution Control Residues'.

I have been a postgraduate teaching assistant (PGTA) in the Integrated Engineering Programme (IEP), Faculty of Engineering, University College London (UCL), since 2019. I assisted in teaching mathematics and helping students to understand and solve mathematical questions. Also, I was a PGTA in the Integrated Design Project (IDP), Civil Engineering, UCL, in the academic year 2020-2021, in which I assisted the course leader to manage the Moodle course, including assigning groups and scheduling timetables. I achieved to manage those unanticipated challenges and acquired nice experience of teaching by delivering great service to students.
