Ali received his Bachelor’s degree (Hons 1st) in Fluid Mechanics, and his Master’s degree (Distinction) in Thermal Power and Fluid Engineering from The University of Manchester in 2012, where he worked on the development of numerical models for turbulent impinging and swirling jets. He received his PhD degree from Cranfield University in 2016, where he worked on the process development for the production of emulsion-based advanced carbon capture materials, in collaboration with Loughborough University. Since then Ali has continued working at Cranfield University as a Research Fellow in energy and environmental technologies.
Ali is currently working on BEN (Balanced Energy Networks) project, where he is developing a solid oxide fuel cell integrated heat recovery system for simultaneous CO2 capture and power generation.
