Postdoctoral Researcher, Heriot-Watt University

Dr Qi Liu is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS) of the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences. He obtained a MSc with Distinction in Chemical Engineering in 2008 and then a PhD in 2012 at the University of Nottingham. He has been with Heriot-Watt University since July 2012.

Dr Liu’s research focuses on experimental and modelling studies on the mineralogical changes and fluid chemistry derived from the injection of CO2 and co-injection of gas mixtures (e.g. CO2-SO2), and geological sequestration of CO2 in saline aquifers and brines.
