Director of Division of Chemical Engineering and Renewable Energy /
Reader in Chemical Engineering
Setting up a new research group and Division of Chemical Engineering with focus on energy engineering.
My research is in soft matter, energy, flow and transport of complex fluids in confinement (porous media), multi-scale imaging and simulation. I investigate how the macroscopic behaviour of complex systems emerges from the underlying microscopic behaviour. I have a solid research track record in two-phase and reactive flow in porous media, with applications in clean fossil fuels, CO2 storage and asphaltene deposition. In my new role at QMUL, I will be extending these applications to renewable energy, battery design, fuel cells and supercapacitors.
I develop both experimental and computational methods for my research. Experimental methods include micro-fluidics, (confocal) microscopy, rheology and X-ray micro-tomography.
Computer simulation methods include lattice-Boltzmann, Multi-Particle Collision Dynamics, and Molecular Dynamics.
I am currently hiring a PhD student in this area. Please contact me for details.

Lecturer in Functional Materials
I am interested in developing materials for energy applications, in particular for fuel synthesis. When solid materials are of very small particles their properties (such as colour, electric conductivity. etc.) starts to depend on the particle size. My main goal is to achieve control of the properties of materials by controlling their particle size and shape. There are various ways to control particle size, and in my approach templates of well-defined size and shape are used. The above templates are pores of a kind of material called metal-organic frameworks. This is a relatively new kind of materials and they can enter very diverse interactions with guest materials, which I aim to explore to further tailor the latter's properties.

Senior Lecturer (equiv. Associate Professor) in Fluid Mechanics
I am the leader of the Fluids, Particles and Interfaces Group (https://bottogroup.wordpress.com/). I am interested in fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, with particular focus on topics at the interface between classical fluid dynamics and materials science. My group uses simulations and theory, often corroborated by experimental results, to uncover fundamental engineering principles that can be applied to practical problems, in areas such as advanced materials, bioengineering, and energy engineering.
Recurring topics of research in the group are the dynamics of particulate materials (suspensions, emulsions, powders, etc.) and the mechanics of soft interfaces.
I lead the "Fluid Mechanics of Nanostructured Materials" Special Interest Group of the EPSRC-funded UK Fluids Network.

Lecturer in Engineering Science
I design numerical models for predicting the behaviour and understanding the uncertainties in the operation of nuclear reactor cores and other nuclear processing facilities. In particular I develop mathematical models to accurately predict neutron and gamma transport within nuclear reactors, and couple these to thermal hydraulic codes that model coolant flows and heat transfer within a core. I am particularly interested in analysing both current nuclear reactors as well as those due to be built within the UK in the coming years, in particular the boiling water reactors. I am also heavily involved in the design of new mathematical models that predict the progression/state of a nuclear reactor?s core in the event of severe accident scenarios.
