Current Research

My research career in the Environmental Engineering is characterised by its diversity. My research is currently focused on porous carbon synthesis using waste materials and their application in adsorption processes.

However, my main research interest lies in understanding the effects of Sustainable Drainage Systems on stormwater quality and quantity, utililising hydrological simulations and statistical predictions.
