I joined the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of Sheffield in November 2018. Prior to joining Sheffield, I was the Head of the computational group at the Adsorption and Advanced Materials Lab at the University of Cambridge for three years.

From 2013-2015, I did a postdoc with Professor Randall Snurr at Northwestern University after completing my PhD at the University of Edinburgh. Over the past 10 years, I have closely worked with companies such as Shell, BP, Honeywell UOP and Honda on developing porous materials for different gas adsorption and separation applications.

My research is focused on the combination of molecular/process-level simulations and big data science to discover and engineer next-generation nanoporous materials for adsorption separation, sensing and energy storage applications.
