General

I am a Senior Research Fellow at European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University and I'm leading the topic on Systems in the Supergen Bioenergy Hub. My research interests focus on bioenergy and related sustainability implications, bioenergy in the context of global challenges and development and the role of bioenergy systems in climate change mitigation including bioenergy with carbon capture and storage/utilisation.

Before joining Aston, I have been working in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at The University of Manchester.

By training I am an agricultural engineer with a focus on SSA countries, rural development and gender studies. I have many years’ experience in bioenergy research, environmental assessment, climate change and socio-economic assessment, with a strong quantitative and qualitative methodological background, incorporating whole systems analysis, life cycle assessment, emission accounting and budgets, environmental and sustainability assessment, stakeholder engagement, interviews and focus groups.
