Green ammonia in shipping and other transport sectors


I recently completed a Master’s degree in Engineering Science at the University of Oxford, with a specialism in Chemical Engineering. My final year research project was under the supervision of Prof. René Bañares-Alcántara on the topic of ammonia powered shipping. I currently work as a research assistant for the Oxford Green Ammonia Technology (OXGATE) group where I am in the process of expanding my MEng model and results, as well as looking to publish in a journal. I have ambitions to begin work on a DPhil in the next academic year with a focus on ammonia applications in future transport sectors.
