Research Interests

Worked with modelling, experiments and scale-up of hydrodynamic cavitation (HC) reactors for my PhD. Experience in applying HC reactors for wastewater treatment, pre-treatment of biomass and fuel desulphurization during subsequent postdoctoral work. Work at CCRC will be to use acoustic and hydrodynamic cavitation to primarily fuel desulphurization.
