JUN. PROF. DR. ANDREW R. GIBSON, FACULTY FOR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Research in the group is focused on the use of plasma-driven chemistry to enable novel technologies in the areas of biomedicine and sustainable chemical processing.  To do this, methods to characterise and control the non-linear chemical processes in plasma sources are developed. Strong emphasis is placed on a combination of compu-tational and experimental measurements to obtain detailed insights into chemical pathways and enable comput-er-aided design of plasma sources for each application. The research programme includes; method development e.g. the construction of simulation frameworks , chemical reaction mechanisms and experimental protocols for reactive species measurement, such as absorption spectroscopy. These methods subsequently applied to under-stand the interaction of plasmas with application targets in the context of plasma-based disinfection processes, plasmas-based cancer therapy and chemical conversion in gases and liquids.
