Technology Transfer Fellow
Sara has a background in chemical engineering, obtaining both her BEng and MSc by Research from Swansea University. Her Masters research focused on catalyst manufacture to reduce NOx emissions from automobiles.
Sara then brought her interest in sustainable solutions to SPECIFIC with the Thermochemical Storage Team as a Technology Transfer Fellow in Heat Systems. Sara’s work focuses on upscaling systems utilising thermochemical storage materials to heat a variety of building applications. She is involved in both the design, testing, and optimization of these systems. The performance of materials at this larger scale influences the development of not only materials, but the control systems and operational parameters required to meet the building requirements. In addition to her research, Sara is also involved in teaching first year students with the College of Engineering, and is part of the organising committee for Soapbox Science Swansea.
