My main interests stems from my work at the University of Nottingham with a group of researchers covering different areas in relation to energy utilization and CO2 and mercury emissions reduction. This was led by Prof Mercedes Maroto-Valer, chair of CO2 capture and storage group, and we collabrated with E-ON Engineering energy utility company in the UK. In addition, I am working with two Mathematics professors on the periodic system of elements beyond Uranium and the kinetic energy equation in terms of compairng with their reactions in different fields.
