Faculty research includes product and market development of biobased fuel, chemical and product outputs, lignin by-product research, and techno-economic analysis.

  • Biorefinery Value Chain Outputs. Commercial potential and policy impacts of liquid biofuel and intermediate/co-product value chain outputs.
  • Biomass Supply Chain Logistics. Techno-economic analysis of integrated biomass supply chains, with a particular focus on product quality changes and opportunities for value-added processing.
  • Lignin Characterization and Novel Uses. Lignin as fuel source, for air and water filtration systems, and as a coke replacement in industrial applications.
