My research focusses on developing advanced techniques to study interfacial phenomena, such as surfactant and gas adsorption using in-situ Raman spectroscopy, and investigate hydrate nucleation and growth on droplets acoustically levitated in high-pressure natural gas.
Raman spectroscopy is applied to characterise a multiphase system, enabling molecular investigation. It’s adapted to visualise the system based on chemical features and to quantify the population upon a unique phenomenon.
Acoustic levitation enables fundamental studies of gas hydrate nucleation and growth by eliminating solid defects (surface) on the formation process. It can also replicate a gas-entrained hydrate formation in gas-dominant pipeline.
