Research area:

Alternative fuels, Carbon Management, Solar energy

Specialty focus areas:

Optofluidic Photobioreactors for Biofuel Generation; Carbon Management Microfluidics; Photobioreactor development


We are developing new photobioreactor architectures based on photonics and fluidics. The aim is scalable energy-efficient solar biofuel production in the Canadian climate. ... We are developing microfluidic based tools for the study of carbon dioxide transport and reactivity in reservoirs. The aim is to inform models for effective carbon management in Canadian energy operations. ... We are developing new photobioreactor architectures to capture sunlight and deliver the appropriate wavelengths and intensities to cyanobacteria.
