Senior Research Fellow, Faculty of Engineering



Miguel Castro Diaz is a member of the Low Carbon Energy and Resource Technologies (LCERT) Research Group.

Expertise Summary

My research interests are in the area of hydrocarbon conversion and waste upgrading and covers heterogeneous catalysis, coal carbonisation, valorisation of biomass and polymer wastes, CO2 capture and hydrogen production. I have worked in research projects sponsored by commercial and non-commercial sources and I have been the project coordinator of two research projects funded by the EU's Research Fund for Coal and Steel, with a combined funding in excess of £3.5M. My current research interests focus on the use of hydrothermal conversion processes and heterogeneous catalysis to transform wastes into liquid fuels and platform chemicals.

Teaching Summary

I am currently providing tutorial support to the convenor of year 4 module Advanced Reaction Engineering (H84ARE).
