Dr Jerome Ramirez is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for Tropical Crops and Biocommodities within Queensland University of Technology. He received his PhD in Energy and Process Engineering in 2018 and a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from the University of the Philippines – Diliman.
Dr Ramirez’ industry experience includes process evaluation and design, process safety, safety and environmental compliance, and risk assessment in the petrochemicals and geothermal energy industries in the Philippines. Furthermore, he has been involved in a number of bioenergy and sustainable production projects in Australia during the course of his PhD study.
His current research focuses on techno-economic modelling of technologies that can couple with conventional production systems to enable sustainable production. This enables the adoption of these technologies in view of increased material and energy efficiency, lower cost, and increased economic, environmental and social benefits.
His research interests encompass chemical process modelling, process integration for sustainable production, and techno-economic analysis.
