Muhammad Arshad     PhD Student

School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Institute of Mechanical, Process & Energy Engineering, Heriot-Watt University, Riccarton, UK



Arshad obtained his MChem at the university of Bradford in 2015. Whilst obtaining his masters, he worked for Unipetrol’s research department in Czech Republic. The project looked at producing jet fuel precursors from second-generation feedstock using zeolites as a catalyst. Following his interest of working with biomass, Arshad has started his PhD looking at ways to depolymerize lignin and potentially to produce value added chemicals from this abundant resource. Arshad is part of Criticat which is the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Critical Resource Catalysis. It is a four year PhD programme with main focus on homogeneous-, heterogeneous- and bio- catalysis as well as chemical engineering.
