  • Bio: Dr. Ahmed Mohamed Taher Alaa Eldein Hussin is an assistant professor in Mechanical Power Engineering Department, Ain Shams University, and a part time Lecturer in the BUE. He got his PhD degree in Combustion in Engines, from the School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds, at the UK in 2013. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc degrees in mechanical power engineering from Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University in the year 2001 and 2006. The M.Sc. has focused on designing, constructing and testing of a small-scale Gamma-type Stirling engine. Now, he is an assistant professor in Ain Shams University. His research activities are focused on biomass energy and waste heat recovery, with more emphasis on improving the performance of Organic Rankine cycle, and Stirling cycle for engine and heat pump applications. Furthermore, his publications are in the field of the combustion properties of biomass related to combustion in engines and thermal power plants.
