A very well deserved recognition for our two Chief Investigators - Dr Emma Lovell and Dr Rahman Daiyan for being awarded the ARC DECRA Fellowship 2023. They will share a portion of $85 million grant funding awarded to 200 recipients to catapult their potential to progress through excellence in research.
Dr Emma Lovell was recognised for her research in photo-thermal ammonia decomposition, with the aim to develop catalysts tailored towards capturing light for ammonia decomposition to enable a new potential pathway for the hydrogen economy, with ammonia as hydrogen carrier.
Dr Rahman Daiyan was awarded for his research in designing single-atom catalysts for renewable waste conversion to urea, in which the utilisation of flue gas and wastewater will be materialised, extending the scope of renewable Power-to-X to realise a circular economy.
They are recruiting PhD students to be based at the ARC Training Centre for the Global Hydrogen Economy and the Particles and Catalysis Research Lab at UNSW Sydney.
