Biography

I am involved in the development of processes that utilise microalgae consortia for carbon sequestration and biofuel production.

I graduated from the University of Sheffield in 2008 and worked as a Chemical and Process Engineer before embarking on a Bioprocessing Masters last year.

Currently, I am in my first year of PhD at Sheffield. My interest resides in merging the use of microorganism to engineering in the production of alternative energy and valuable products, whilst mitigating environmental pollution.
