Research

As a KESS2 PhD research student, I am currently researching microbial volatile compounds (mVOC) utilising the selectively of Gas Chromatography coupled with the sensitivity of Ion Mobility Spectrometry (GC-IMS). The FlavourSpec (G.A.S. Dortmund) application has a sample introduction system (SIS) for automated sample preparation and handling. The aim of my research is to develop a Multivariate statistical process control paradigm for reactor optimisation for sustainable energy and platform chemical generation. The objective is to measure bacterial species to identify mVOC’s specific to bacterial genres to determine chemical signatures and develop the IMS database. The final stage of this project will include GC-IMS as an online monitoring application, for real-time process control of reactor outputs.
