Peter has over 20 years of research experience on several fundamental and applied aspects of clathrate or gas hydrates. He has published extensively in this area including reviews on clathrate hydrates, kinetics, energy and environmental aspects and a provisional patent. During the past 15 years he has also developed expertise on several aspects of papermaking chemistry or “wet-end” chemistry. The link connecting these apparently different areas is that the systems under study are aqueous multiphase systems. Tackling these complex systems involve research methodologies based primarily on chemical thermodynamics aided by kinetics, mass transfer, colloid chemistry and optimization methods.
