Ocean Cheung – Principle Investigator

Ocean is an associate professor at the Division of Nanotechnology and Functional Materials at Uppsala University, Sweden. Ocean grew up in the small town of Monmouth, UK. He holds a Master of Chemistry (MChem) degree from the University of Warwick, UK and a PhD in Materials Chemistry from Stockholm University, Sweden. His PhD work was carried out under the supervision of Prof. Niklas Hedin on the development of narrow pore zeolites and related materials for carbon dioxide sorption. After completing his PhD Ocean was a postdoc in Prof. Maria Strømme‘s group at Uppsala University. After another postdoc position at Heriot-Watt University, UK he returned to Uppsala University as a senior researcher. Ocean became associate professor at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Uppsala University.

Michelle Åhlén – Post-doc researcher

Michelle Åhlén graduated with a master’s degree in chemical engineering and a PhD in Materials Science from Uppsala University, Sweden. Her PhD thesis focused on the development of framework porous materials for environmental applications . She is currently working on the synthesis and characterization of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) and zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) for gas storage and separation as well as catalysis.

Ribooga Chang – PhD student since 2019

Ribooga Chang graduated with an MSc from Gwanju institute of science and technology(GIST), South Korea. Her MSc work was on the control of calcium carbonate crystallisation and polymorphism for mineral carbonation of CCS technology. She is currently working on the synthesis and practical applications of various nano and mesoporous materials including calcium carbonate for gas separation, water treatment and drug delivery
