Ahmed is a Lecturer of Thermal-Fluid Sciences in Mechanical Engineering at Aston University in the UK. Ahmed is a principle investigator in Energy & Byproduct Research Institute (EBRI) and Aston Institute of Material Research (AIMR). Ahmed lead the research on sustainable cooling technologies and thermal energy storages. Ahmed 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 the electrification of modern powertrains.
