Personal profile


Dr.  Essam Abo-Serie obtained his BSc with honours in 1989 and MSc in 1995 from Cairo University, Mechanical Power Engineering. He completed his PhD from Imperial College London, Mechanical Engineering in 2004. His major study was focusing on fuel injection and spray characterization using computational and laser techniques.

He was a  research  assistant  in  City  University  London  in 2002-2004. He  then joined  Engine  Lab  as  postdoctoral  fellow at  Korea  Advanced  Institute  Science  and  Technology, KAIST in South Korea 2004-2005. He worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Loughborough University, UK, 2006-2007.  Then he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer at Coventry University in 2007. During his career he was involved in many research projects sponsored by Renault, Bosch, Siemens and Rolls-Royce.  He carried out various consultancy work.   Dr Abo-Serie has also worked in Cairo University  and initiated  and  supervised  Cairo  University Formula  Student  Team in 2012  before  moving  to  Mevlana  University  in Turkey as Associate Professor where he found the Mechanical Engineering Department. He  has  wide  range  of  research  activities  in  thermofluids  applications  both modelling and experimental. His expanded his publications from atomization and spray  characterization from GDI  injectors  using  laser techniques  and  CFD to various other thermofluids problems including ground vehicle aerodynamics, Turbochargers, burners, SPH and turbomachines. He used his knowledge in optics and laser techniques to develop an active optical vision system for seam tracking of robotic welding.

Dr Abo-Serie has over 60 international reviewed publications and two patents and he is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy in UK (FHEA) and a member of Institute of Physics IOP, Society of Automotive Engineers SAE, ILASS Europe, Egyptian society of Mechanical Engineers, Engineering Society of Mechanical Engineering ESME and a reviewer for different international journals.
