David Vega-Maza gained his research experience to date in the fields of experimental thermodynamics (including calorimetry and phase behaviour), fundamental measurement science (including acoustic techniques for gas properties and new standards in temperature and humidity), and in power plants analysis and simulation. He joined the Shell and Qatar CCS research group at Imperial College London, where he carried out experimental work measuring thermophysical properties of CO2-fluid mixtures under capture and storage conditions. His research portfolio at the University of Aberdeen aims to develop new models and measuring technologies in order to gain fundamental knowledge, reduce uncertainties and engage in cross-cutting activities in CCS as a climate change mitigation technology.

He is currently the CCS group champion in Aberdeen, and member of the Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage  -SCCS- directorate.
