Christina Andreadou

Background

A MEng graduate in Environmental Engineering at Democritus University of Thrace, in Greece, with an MSc in Renewable Energy Systems at International Hellenic University in Thessaloniki, Greece and an MSc in Biofuels Process Engineering at Cranfield University, UK.

Research Interests

Main research interests are linked with the overall Bioenergy. More specifically exploring the conversion routes for Bioenergy and Biofuels generation, along with the assessment of the life cycle of biomass for bioenergy production are quite appealing, whilst the modelling of these processes is highly interesting.

Why I chose the CDT in Bioenergy

The main difference between the CDT in Bioenergy provided from Leeds University and the other PhD from other institutions is the flexibility and freedom in terms of options regarding the topic. This PhD provides the possibility to explore the bioenergy sector through one-year period of optional modules and group projects before selecting the PhD project which is utterly compatible to the students’ preferences. Moreover, the industrial placement included during this four-year program, as well as the participation in conferences, the industrial visits and the University’s facilities are also great advantages of being a part of the CDT in Bioenergy. From my perspective, this PhD offers a high quality research and working experience, a great network with the industrial sector, various skills that would be beneficial for the future, the collaboration with respectful personalities.
