Research Summary

Reza is currently a Lecturer (Teaching) in Digital Manufacturing of Advanced Materials responsible for module(s) of a MSc programme under the same name, hosted at Manufacturing Futures Lab, UCL East.

Before that, Reza was a Post Doctoral Research Fellow working on a project entitled “Process systems engineering approach to catalytic process design” in collaboration with a group of scientists from UK Catalysis Hub. The project intended to change the philosophy of catalyst design by linking catalyst development with process design and by taking a holistic, process systems view of the overall process including all the processing steps such as reactors and separation units and their interconnections.
