Biography:

I research and develop hybrid energy efficient and environmentally sustainable renewable power and energy technologies for building applications and for electric vehicles. The focus of my research is on the experimental, modelling, simulation and optimisation using advanced simulation tools (Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Artificial Intelligence methods (ML, DL, etc.)) for the optimal design, performance and emissions predictions of micro-combined heat and power systems, solar/heat-driven tri-generation, thermal/thermo-chemical energy storage, and hybrid energy storage systems for electric vehicles. The aim of my R&D investigations is to improve the energy efficiency, reduce cost, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation by increasing use of renewables and reducing reliance on unsustainable energy sources such as coal, kerosene and diesel.
