Professor Nadeem Ahmed Sheikh
Topic: Distributed waste to power generation system for hydrogen production
Bio: Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at International Islamic University and currently have the portfolio of Dean of the Faculty of engineering & technology. The faculty offers 06 undergraduate programs in three departments of electrical & computer, mechanical and civil engineering. In addition, I am also a visiting Professor at Aston and TEESSIDE Universities in the UK. Author of more than 75 Impact Factor Journals of high international repute; my combined impact factor is more than 150. My key areas of research & development are low-cost, eco-friendly, Energy technologies and related power systems. In addition, I am interested in Building/envelope Energy Modelling within the context of BIM & recent advancements in AI, IoT & smart electro-mechanical systems. I am particularly working on the role of data engineering in these areas of interest for optimization, projections, and forecasting.
