Associate professor, The University of Queensland

Simon Smart is an Associate Professor in the School of Chemical Engineering, Senior Research Fellow in the Dow Centre for Sustainable Engineering Innovation and Director of the Functional Interfacial Materials and Membranes Laboratory (FIM2Lab) at The University of Queensland.

I have a background in Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and my research centres around the sustainable production and use of energy and chemicals. This can range from the technical development of enabling technologies like inorganic membranes and molten catalysts for the production of clean hydrogen, CO2 utilisation and low CO2 iron to much broader questions, encompassing the role of energy in society and the pace of our energy transition.
