I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at SMN working, as part of the UiO contribuition to the BiZeolCat Project, to develop new bifuncitonal catalysts and processes for the conversion of light alkanes to olefins and aromatics. 

I completed my PhD in 2017 under the supervision of Professor Russell Morris at the University of St Andrews. My research focused on the synthesis and characterisation of new zeolites through traditional hydrothermal synthesis and the new ADOR process.

Previous to my position at UiO I also worked as a Policy Officer at the Institution of Chemical Engineers.
