About me

I joined KTH in November 2019 as an Assistant Professor in Chemical Engineering with specialization in Energy Processes. My research involves equipment scale modelling, process modelling and simulation and techno-economic analysis with focus on:

  • Multiple greenhouse gases mitigation (CH4, N2O and CO2) and direct air capture
  • Decarbonization of industrial sector
  • Hydrogen production and CO2 capture
  • Clean energy conversion
  • Process intensification

Research projects:

1. MGM-NEGAF: Multiple greenhouse gases mitigation (MGM) from air to achieve “Energy efficient

    negative emissions from agriculture and farming” 

    Funding received: 13.8 Million SEK

    Funding Agency: Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten)

    Role: Project Leader and responsible for process design and techno-economic analysis

    Period: 2020-2024


2. ProDeox: Processes for fuel production via deoxygenated bio-oil

    Funding received: 1.7 Million SEK

    Funding Agency: Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten) and Förnybara drivmedel

    och system (f3 partners)

    Role: Project Leader and responsible for process design and modelling

    Period: 2020-2021


Supervision of masters thesis projects:

  1. Negative emission ammonia fertilizer plant: Techno-economic case study,  Lucio Rodrigo Alejo Vargas (, Spring 2020
  2. CO2 capture from industry using chilled ammonia process, Soumia Amara (, Spring 2020
