Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on experimental research in heat transfer and waste heat recovery. My previous research has investigated the miniaturisation of heat exchangers for developing technologies, ranging from clean energy to computer systems. My current work is looking at a possible method for storing green energy, a requirement for the large scale implementation of green energy supplies. I am also interested in technology which can be readily applied to current systems for the recovery of waste heat.  

Scholarly biography

I completed my BEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering from Heriot Watt University in 2009. After which I moved to Brunel University to complete my MSc in Advanced Mechanical Engineering, followed by a PhD in flow boiling in microchannels.

I joined the University of Brighton as a Research Fellow in early 2014, conducting experimental heat transfer research.
