I am Senior Lecturer on undergraduate and postgraduate thermodynamics courses in mechanical engineering.

My background is in organic chemical technology and polymer engineering and I have a MSc in Materials Science.

During my PhD project “Experimental and Theoretical Investigation of the Interfacial Phenomena Associated with Wetting and Spreading of Trisiloxane Solutions” at the School of Engineering, University of Edinburgh, I developed a great passion for wetting and evaporative behaviour of complex fluids, including nanoparticle dispersions and surfactant solutions.

My current research encompasses Organic Rankine cycles, low GWP heat pumps systems and renewable energies.

I am also the Athena SWAN Champion in the School of Engineering.
