The University of Edinburgh
NEWEST-CCUS Project Coordinator
The University of Edinburgh (UoE) is a world leading university, consistently ranked amongst the Top 25 Institutions in the QS University World Rankings. UoE has a strong track record in many aspects of CCS research, especially geology and engineering but also understanding public and community perceptions and mechanisms for better engagement. The School of Engineering promotes excellence in fundamental research across traditional disciplinary boundaries, facilitating knowledge transfer to relevant industry.
Mathieu Lucquiaud, Senior Lecturer in the Institute for Energy Systems, School of Engineering, has worked on CCS since 2005. He will lead WP1. His work has largely focused on the integration of carbon capture on fossil fuel power plants and the performance of amine solvent-based capture units.
Camilla Thomson, Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy will lead WP5. She was awarded a PhD in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh in 2014 on the Carbon and Energy Payback of Variable Renewable Generation. Her research focus is the CO2 emissions and environmental impacts of energy technologies techno-economic analysis and resource assessment.
