    Personal profile

    Biography

     

    A Material Science, Thermodynamics and Renewable Energy specialist with strong track record in heat management issues, material synthesis and characterisation, mass transfer, thermodynamics, biomaterials and renewable energy. Proven creative experience of research in six major research projects and publication of large number of Q1 scientific papers. Currently he is a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Mechanical Engineering at Coventry University where he is the leader of the Hydrogen for Mobility Laboratory and the Energy Materials Research Group.I received my PhD in the field of Mechanical Engineering in 2014 with dissertation title: ADVANCED MATERIALS AND PROCESSES FOR HYDROGEN STORAGE AND COMPRESSION SYSTEMS.

    I also have research experience as Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham for two years after joining the Hydrogen Research Group led by Professor David Grant and Professor Gavin Walker.

    I have more than 20 peer reviewed journal publications and attendance at more than 10 International Conferences with plenty of oral and poster presentations. I have been involved in 6 major research projects funded by E.U and national organizations.

    Currently I am a Lecturer at Coventry University and my main teaching duties are in the field of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid dynamics.
