Bio

I am a highly motivated teacher. I enjoy teaching a wide variety of subjects. I work a lot on creating new pedagogical means to help students understand scientific subjects with a critical methodology to help think outside the box. My research is primarily focused on nanoporous materials. Additionally, I am also working on areas in philosophy of science.

Research and Professional Activities

My research is in the area of porous materials and adsorption. I specialize in combining and integrating different characterisation techniques for better understanding porous structures of nanoporous materials. In my research capacity I have used an integrated round of mercury porosimetry, gas adsorption, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), cryogenic nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), X-ray scanning, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) spectroscopy and time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) to analyse silica sol-gels and fuel cell layers. Additionally, I have used several modelling techniques to simulate adsorption phenomenon within porous materials using MATLAB and PASCAL via mean field density function theory (MFDT). Moreover, I have used several imaging software to reconstruct fuel cell layers using X-ray imaging. I intend to research further into how the porous structures of fuel cell layers can be better understood and correlated with fuel cell efficiency.
I am open for collaborative work in the characterization of nanoporous materials. I am also open for multidisciplinary work in the intersection of science and philosophy.
