PhD Title: Novel approaches for hydrogen production through methane pyrolysis on carbon catalysts

Praveen has a Master’s degree in the field of Materials Engineering. The objective of his research is to develop a fundamental model for thermal decomposition (pyrolysis) of methane in the presence of carbon catalysts to produce clean hydrogen. He will also conduct laboratory studies to validate the model and explore the use of additives and a non-thermal plasma to enhance the activity and stability of the carbon catalysts.
