My current research interests are in the alternative fuel sector, particularly waste to energy. This includes novel feedstocks, carbon negative fuels, and the technology for energy dense fuel production. Within the technology sector of waste to energy, small scale cryogenic systems are of great interest to me.
From an environmental standpoint, my current research interests are the further understanding of anthropological methane and recognising unclassified sources.
