Short Biography:

Dr Sarwat Iqbal is an Instrument Scientist specialising in solid state materials, and with diverse expertise in the application of crystallography and various spectroscopies to understand the properties of novel materials. Prior to moving to Lincoln, she worked as a Senior Researcher at Cardiff Catalysis Institute, Cardiff University (2012-2018) and as a Project leader at Avantium Technologies Amsterdam, The Netherlands (2010-2012). She did her PhD in Physical chemistry at Cardiff University with Professor Graham J. Hutchings (2006-2009) and was sponsored by SABIC. Sarwat’s research interests lie in the design of heterogeneous catalysts for the synthesis of clean chemicals for sustainable biofuels and chemicals production from renewable resources, specifically waste biomass (e.g. forestry waste, and food etc).
