Dr Megan Jobson

Senior Lecturer

Megan has industrial experience as a process engineer with Unilever. Her research aims to develop design methodologies for separation and reactive separation processes that are inherently efficient, in terms of energy demand, raw material consumption, waste production and generation of emissions.

Recent and current research projects develop methodologies for conceptual design, retrofit and optimisation of separation systems. Systems addressed include heat-integrated distillation systems, refinery distillation processes, ternary and multicomponent azeotropic distillation sequences, absorption and reactive absorption processes, and reactive distillation processes.
