About

Elsa Antunes obtained her PhD degree in Chemical Engineering from James Cook University in 2017. Elsa’s PhD was focused on understanding the impact of microwave pyrolysis conditions on biochar properties produced from diverse biomass. She has recently joined James Cook University as a Mechanical Engineering Lecturer. She is currently focused in materials engineering, such as biomedical implants, transparent ceramics, biomass pyrolysis and surface functionality of biochar through different modification techniques for water purification, resource recovery and desalination.
