Dan graduated in 2013 from Sheffield University with a Masters degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering. He was interested in the environmental side of the course and having previously undertaken research regarding CO2 emissions reduction via utilisation, Dan was keen to take this research further. Dan started his PhD in October 2013 working CO2 absorption using ionic liquids under the supervision of Professor Peter Styring.
