Thermochemical Biomass Conversion Processes



BS Mechanical Engineering, University of Washington, Seattle, WA


My research focuses on fast pyrolysis of lignocellulosic biomass. I work with a fluidized bed reactor which is capable of performing standard fast pyrolysis, catalytic fast pyrolysis, hydropyrolysis and catalytic bio-oil upgrading. I also study biomass pretreatments.
