In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the different biomass thermal treatment processes, i.e., torrefaction, pyrolysis, combustion .. Read more and gasification for the production of biochar, bio-fuels, heat and power generation. Likewise, the different properties of biomass compared to coal have prompted the need to develop general models that address these differences and that can be implemented for the improved design and optimisation of biomass combustion and gasification boilers. In 2017, she was a visiting researcher at the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions (RCCS), Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh). Her current research interests focus on biomass utilization for energy and value-added products. For the past eighteen years, my research has been dedicated to various aspects of the thermo-chemical conversion of biomass and fossil resources to added-value products, e.g., materials, electricity, heat, chemicals or fuels, and associated issues related to efficiency, sustainability and GHG emissions. In 2009, I joined the University of Edinburgh and together with colleagues, co-founded the UK Biochar Research Centre at the School of Geosciences. My research has since then been focused on the conversion of biomass to biochar and co-products for the purpose of atmospheric carbon sequestration, and adaptation to climate change (tackling environmental issues and making agricultural production more efficient and resilient).
