Research interests

My research area is centered around anaerobic digestion of food waste and increase the energy potential from anaerobic digestion:

1. Anaerobic digestion of food waste. 

2. Hydrothermal gasification of food waste digestate. 

3. Optimisation of biogas potential from anaerobic digestion of food waste via syngas recycling. 

4. Optimizing other options for syngas.
