Anh Phan

  • Dr Phan’s expertise lies in the fields of energy from waste, biofuel processing, biorefinery, process intensification and non-thermal plasma assisted chemical processes, biorefinery and waste treatment. She has a strong record of publications in these areas (27 publications in international journals, h-index of 11).

    Dr Phan is a lecturer in Chemical Engineering at Newcastle University. Prior to this position, she worked as a Research Associate at Newcastle. During the period of 2008-2013, she successfully delivered two consecutive EPSRC multi-disciplinary projects: (i) Evolvable Process Design (EP/F016999/1) and (ii) Designer catalysts for high efficiency biodiesel production (EP/F067372/1). Dr Phan completed her PhD at the University of Sheffield in 2007. Her research concerned combustion, gasification and pyrolysis of segregated municipal solid waste (mainly household waste) for energy. She developed a two-stage parallel reaction model coupled with computational fluid dynamics (FLIC code) to simulate solid pyrolysis. She was invited to present work on renewable energy and energy efficiency. Dr Phan is currently the principal supervisor to five PhD students undertaking research on energy and fuel from waste, non-thermal plasma assisted gas-to-liquid processes. She is a regular reviewer for a number of international peer-reviewed journals (fuel, chemical engineering journal, energy and fuels, etc.).
