I am a PhD student within the Renewable Energy department, working under the supervision of  Dr Xiaoyu Yan.  My research focusses on environmental evaluation of renewable energies, particularly techno-economic and social impacts of large-scale production of bioenergy. The methodology generally involves developing a spatially and temporally explicit Life-Cycle Analysis (LCA) model. 

Research interests

  • Bioenergy and biofuels
  • Biomass-to-bioenergy routes
  • Life-cycle analysis
  • Sustainability and environmental impact assessment
