Abdul Wahab is pursuing his PhD. in Mechanical, Manufacturing and Mechatronic Engineering at RMIT, Australia in cooperation with FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Germany. His areas of research are thermal management and techno-economic analysis of renewable energy systems. Furthermore, he has expertise in exergy analysis and environmental impact analysis.
His current work examines thermal management of batteries for heavy machines to prevent thermal runaway which cascade over and cause battery pack failure. His research supports the UN’s Sustainable development goal, in particular SDG 7 (Clean and Affordable Energy). His work has been appeared in Springer Nature, Journal of Cleaner Production, and Renewable Energy, among other publications.
Abdul holds a Master of Science degree with Distinction in New and Renewable Energy from University of Durham, United Kingdom and a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Engineering and Technology Taxila, Pakistan. He was awarded a prestigious Commonwealth Scholarship to pursue his master’s from UK. Before starting his PhD, he worked as a Product Mechanical Engineer at vivo Communications Technology, Pakistan where he was particularly involved in new product introduction and development.
