Professor Englezos has over 20 years of research experience on several fundamental and applied aspects of clathrate or gas hydrates. He has published extensively in this area including reviews on clathrate hydrates, kinetics, energy and environmental aspects and a provisional patent. During the past 15 years he has also developed expertise on several aspects of papermaking chemistry or “wet-end” chemistry. The link connecting these apparently different areas is that the systems under study are aqueous multiphase systems. In order to tackle these complex systems our research methodology is based primarily on chemical thermodynamics aided by kinetics, mass transfer, colloid chemistry and optimization methods. The experimental approach involves macroscopic techniques and a suit of molecular level studies.
