Dr Lindsay-Marie Armstrong is an Associate Professor within Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton; the Chair of the Clean Carbon University Strategic Research Group (USRG); recently appointed Academic Lead for the Solent Industrial Decarbonisation Cluster; and Director of Student Recruitment for the School of Engineering.
Previous responsibilities have included: previous Chair of the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment’s Equality and Diversity committee, leading to two Faculty Bronze awards; member of Senate; member of the IMA Research Committee; and Chair of the Institute of Mathematics Early Career Mathematicians Committee.
Career breaks include two maternity leaves.
Lindsay-Marie has a BSc (Hons) Mathematics degree and MSc in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). In 2012, she completed her PhD which developed reactive multiphase models for thermochemical conversion processes within coal and biomass fluidised beds. Upon completion she was awarded a New Frontiers Fellowship at the University of Southampton. This enabled her to expand her research and network to establish, and Chair, the Clean Carbon USRG which is a network of over 150+ academic and industrial partners.
She develops computational tools for accelerating scale-up of reactive technologies and has extensive knowledge of reactive multiphase modelling, particularly for carbon capture and utilization technologies. She publishes in leading journals, including Chemical Engineering Journal, International journal of heat and mass transfer, International Journal of Multiphase Flow; Frontiers in Chemistry GCB Bioenergy; in addition to leading international conferences.
Awards include the Institute of Physics 2011 "Award for significant progress in Combustion by an early career researcher" and the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment’s 2013 “Dean’s award for Early Career Excellence”. She has also been nominated for several VC teaching awards.
She is a member of the UKCCSRC Advisory Committee, a member of the CO2CHEM network, a member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) and also its Research Committee; and member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
