Research Interests:
My research focuses on the use of supported metal catalysts to support the efficient conversion of lipids, such as waste oils and bio-derived triglycerides, into hydrocarbon fuels in the range of green diesel and jet fuel. The goal is to create a more cost effective path to green diesel and jet fuel with desirable properties for their respective applications than current methods. Ideally, this will help drive the shift from petroleum derived fuels to waste-derived and bio-derived fuels, which represent a more environmentally conscious approach to obtaining combustion fuels. I am also interested in the application of DFT computational models to this catalyst system. By using converging experimental, analytical, and computational approaches, the hope is to more fundimentally understand how these catalysts work and how we may improve them.
