I joined Aston University in September 2007 as a Research Associate in the Sustainable Environment Research Group. Although this is my first appointment in academia, previously I worked in a process industry as a Mechanical Engineer for 4 years before starting my postgraduate study. I worked on design and modification of the components, process design and optimisation of flow parameters, and new installation and commissioning of machineries. Prior to that, I worked as a Mechanical Engineer in a dual-fueled and pure gas engine power generation plant.
In 2014, I was appointed as a Lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering and Design Group.
My main research interests are in developing small-to-medium scale renewable energy systems for multi/poly generation application. Specific areas of interest include but not limited to:
Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Member of the Energy Institute (MEI).
Kemal Masera - Low emission biofuels
Abdelnasir Omran (MRes) - Sustainable biofuels in Sudan
Zaraan Engineer: Steam-based solar power for use in India (Associate Supervisor)
Yohan Engineer: Energy recovery from low-grade heat (Associate Supervisor)
