Personal profile

General

Ahmed is a Lecturer of Thermal-Fluid Sciences in Mechanical Engineering. He has extensive first-hand research experience in thermal systems modelling and optimisation. He developed several approaches in adsorption systems modelling, which is now widely adopted by other researchers. He worked in 1D engine modelling to study and optimise the electrification of turbochargers. In the field of turbomachinery, he carried out 3D Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) turbine modelling and coupled 1D/3D-FCD modelling. Ahmed published several impactful journal papers (h-index 10, above 400 citations). He published, presented and co-chaired in many internationally reputable conferences
