Our staffEngineering staff firmly believe in the importance of an applied approach.
Mrs Maria Astrid Centeno is the course director of the MSc Petroleum Engineering course, as well as the integrity coordinator of the division of Chemical and Energy Engineering
Dr Diaz specialises in reservoir engineering, specifically in the areas of fluid–fluid and fluid–rock interactions, formation damage, and oil recovery methods. In academia he has researched in the areas of nano-materials, and enhanced oil recovery methods.
Andrew's research interests are in multi-phase fluid flow associated with well performance and also heterogeneous catalysis and reaction engineering.
Dr. Jim Ingram graduated with a degree in Applied Chemistry from Brunel University in 1989. He then Joined the Explosion and Fire Research Group at London South Bank University and was awarded a PhD in the development of instrumentation for and investigation of residual fuel oil flammability hazards in ships bunker tanks in 1995. Subsequently he took a post as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow within the EFRG and has been involved in a number of projects both conducting research and producing safety guidance on behalf of a number of organisations.
Dr Jahanzad is the head of teaching and learning in Chemical and Energy Engineering (CEE) Division. She is responsible for smooth running of teaching and learning activities in CEE and works closely with the head of division to meet all quality assurance requirements for CEE courses.
She specialises in emulsions and polymer reaction engineering, with interests in emulsifications techniques and microfluidics.
Basu's research interests are in Greener and Sustainable Chemical Technology, Continuous Flow Reactions, Conversion of carbon-dioxide to Values Added Chemicals and Fuels.
A geophysicist by background, Helen is focussed on applying technical skills required to study the Earth to a range of decarbonisation disciplines.
