Research

I have a background in Advanced Technology and Sustainable Energy Technology. My research concerns thermochemical conversion of biomass, new generations of advanced biofuels, and innovations in the fields of bioeconomy and circular economy. I have worked with experimental setups ranging from small scale micrograms up till pilot plants operating at 50 kg/h, mostly in fast pyrolysis and torrefaction. I have experience in a wide range of analysis techniques for biomass samples. 

I am always interested in possible collaborations; please contact me for further information.
