My work mainly focuses on solar and renewable energy technologies and applications. My research interest is in development of next generation Hybrid photovoltaic/thermal systems, solar thermal technologies and compact thermal storage systems through nanotechnology and new/novel working fluids and materials. In addition, my goal is to develop more efficient and economical energy self-sufficient building and agricultural facilities. My research covers both theoretical and applied aspects via process modeling and physical prototype testing. I have a good command of modeling software in the context of simulating transient responses in particular under the intermittent nature of input parameters.
