Past students

Mai Bui, PhD, Monash University
Mai Bui joined the CCTC group in August 2011 as a PhD student in the School of Applied Sciences and Engineering, Monash University. She investigated the dynamic behaviour of the PCC process during flexible operation. Mai conducted a dynamic operation study at CSIRO's PCC pilot plant in AGL Loy Yang and modelled the process in Aspen Plus® and Aspen Plus Dynamics®. This work developed a reliable technique for dynamic operation of a PCC plant, also it identified key process parameters that influence dynamic behaviour. Since finishing her PhD in November 2015, Mai will work as a research associate at Imperial College London to assess the viability of biomass co-firing in power
