Sayara Saliyeva

Ms Sayara Saliyeva

Sayara graduated with an MEng in Chemical Engineering from University of Sheffield, UK, for which she was awarded the Kazakhstan President’s Bolashak International Scholarship. She joined UCL at their Adelaide campus on a BHP Billiton Scholarship award to pursue a PhD looking at the life cycle assessment of underground coal gasification. 

Sayara is supervised jointly by Professor Stefaan Simons (Director of the International Energy Policy Institute, UCL) and Professor Paola Lettieri (Department of Chemical Engineering, UCL). 

Prior to joining UCL, she held a post as a teaching and research assistant within the Department of Chemical Engineering at  Nazarbayev University, Kazakhstan. Sayara’s research interests lie at the interface between environmental risk assessment and techno-economic analysis of gasification processes, particularly in relation to policy formation and the establishment of novel or emerging technologies.
