Personal profile


Dr Emmanuel Epelle, a Chancellor's Fellow in the School of Engineering, is primarily developing innovative advanced oxidation technologies for decontaminating reusable medical devices and wastewater. His research features the application of mathematical modelling and laboratory experimentation to analyze the susceptibility of recalcitrant contaminants and microbes to new treatment methods. On a renewable energy front, Dr Epelle also explores the application of diverse modelling methods for assessing the viability of waste biomass-to-biofuel conversion processes and the subsequent utilisation routes.

Before his Fellowship, he undertook a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Advanced Clothing Solutions and the University of the West of Scotland, where he developed the UK’s first/patented automated process for decontaminating apparel and PPE on an industrial scale. His research is driving the healthcare and energy sectors towards achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (3, 6 & 13), igniting positive change on a global scale.
