Naoko’s expertise lies in the area of multiphase reaction engineering with emphasis on fluidized beds. Some current projects include: CO2 capture; biomass gasification and pyrolysis; chemical looping combustion; pyrolysis product utilization including bio-oil and biochar applications; and biofuels. In particular, she is involved in utilizing biomass through production of liquid fuel from biomass waste, developing biochar for capacitive deionization, tar reduction in biomass gasifiers. She is passionate about engaging others on sustainability related issues, and developing ways to advance environmental literacy in higher education.
