Biography

Currently I am working on optimising algae harvesting techniques to bolster industrial feasibility of biofuel technology.

I graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2012 with a Bsc in Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine. I then became interested in the development of sustainable energy. To that end I am working towards a PhD under the supervision of Professor Patrick Fairclough. The PhD's focus is to devise and implement strategies for the production of biofuel from algae; specifically to ensure the fuel is environmentally positive and viable both economically and industrially.
