Research Outline

Future fuels combustion in heavy duty engines


In 2013 I started an integrated Masters of Chemistry course at the University of Southampton. Following my second year, I undertook an internship working of experiment optimisation with the goals of reducing waste production, power consumption and water consumption. From here I directed my studies much more towards the sustainable aspects of chemistry.
In 2016, for the Masters internship of my course, I travelled to the Technical University of Eindhoven and worked on lignin fuel productions under Dr Michael Boot. The work focused on creating new diesel-lignin fuels blends, ‘upgrading’ the lignin to a higher value fuel. Wanting to stay in biofuel production and testing I started my PhD under Dr Paul Hellier in 2017, testing the combustion properties of new future fuels.
