Dr Carolina Font Palma

Post Nominals PhD, FHEA, AMIChemE
Biography Dr Font Palma is Lecturer and Programme Director of Chemical Engineering. She joined the School of Engineering in January 2021, where she works on process simulation, process integration of energy systems, low-carbon energy and hydrogen, and cryogenic carbon capture. She previously worked at the University of Chester as Lecturer in Chemical Engineering.

She has a PhD in biomass gasification from the University of Manchester and post-doctoral experience in carbon capture at the University of Leeds. She has been part of various consortia involving research on oxy-combustion, cryogenic carbon capture, gas turbines and exhaust gas recirculation, and methanol synthesis. She led the CO2-FROST project funded by the UKCCSRC Flexible funding 2020.

Carolina was awarded the prestigious RAEng/The Leverhulme Trust Research Fellowship 2020/2021. She has numerous publications on energy and carbon capture, and is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College .
