Current Research Activities


Part of my research focuses on energy production, mainly from Biofuels and solar panels. Biofuel is produced through the integration of solar heat in a parabolic concentrator into thermochemical processes of biomass (e.g. Algae). The main objective is to create a microgrid system for Congolese communities.

Research Keywords: 
dye solar cells
energy access
