Current PhD Research

Experimental and theoretical research on the conversion of greenhouse gases towards “green” feedstock for the chemical industry in the following projects:

Hydrogenation of CO2 to Methanol under Dynamic Reaction Conditions: A Novel Concept for Carbon Capture and Utilization
Development of a microkinetic model describing the adsorption and conversion of CO2 and the desorption of methanol under dynamic reaction conditions

C-C-Coupling – Conversion of Methane towards higher value products
Design of suitable catalysts as well as parameter studies on the catalytic system to maximize product selectivities
