Senior Lecturer, College of Engineering


I work in the New Energy Safety Research Institute ESRI and have many interests in the field of energy.

Primarily my focus is in utilising Hydrogen as an energy vector for renewable energy.

I work with hydrogen production and management technology including photocatalytic materials that can be used for the generation of hydrogen and hydrogen detectors.
