Background and activities

I am a PhD candidate in the Environmental Engineering and Reactor Technology research group at the department of chemical engineering, studying the oxidative and biological degradability of amines that are, or can be utilized for CO2-capture.

Here are some non-academic contributions I have made

A blog-post about a research stay at TNO in The Netherlands in October  2019: https://blog.sintef.com/sintefenergy/ccs/oxidative-degradation-co2-capture-nccs-mobility-fund/
