Hello, my name is Theodore Hanein and this is my personal website. I am a chemist/chemical process engineer who applies a wide range of computational and laboratory techniques to solve engineering problems. I am currently working as a research associate in the department of Material Science & Engineering at the University of Sheffield, and I also run my own consulting company (MANATEE CONSULTING LIMITED). My current research includes: 1) reducing the carbon footprint and energy consumption of cement manufacture, 2) utilising waste and industrial by-products for cement manufacture, and 3) formulating novel binders. During my PhD, I was part of the $5M Green Concrete Project undertaken at the University of Aberdeen; my work involved producing calcium sulfoaluminate cement (C$A) formulations and processes using oil and gas by-products. In a group of more than 20 members, I was responsible for architecting ~20 successful pilot scale production trials of various novel cement clinkers. I have also produced a thermodynamic database for simulating cement (including C$A) production across a range of temperatures, raw feeds, and fuels. Working on projects in multi-national teams and with various globally-renowned industrial and academic partners has enabled me to develop effective relationships with experts in my field. I have also had several opportunities to present complex concepts and projects on global stages.
