Dr Dawid P. Hanak is currently a Lecturer in Clean Energy at Cranfield University. He has received a B.Eng. degree (with distinction) in Environmental and Energy Engineering, and the M.Eng. degree in Power Engineering from Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice, Poland in 2012 and 2013, respectively. He also received the M.Sc. degree in Carbon Capture and Transport, and the Ph.D. degree in Carbon Capture Systems Engineering from Cranfield University, Cranfield, UK in 2013 and 2016, respectively. Dr Hanak has held research positions at Cranfield University, and has been leading process modelling activities in a portfolio of research projects in the areas of Energy Systems and Carbon Capture and Storage. His research interest includes low-emission power generation and industrial processes, sustainable energy systems, fossil fuel power plants retrofits with CO2 capture systems, probabilistic techno-economic performance assessment, and reliability analysis. His expertise is in process simulation and modelling of power generation and CO2 capture systems, and statistical analysis of engineering data.
Dr Hanak is currently accepting PhD applications for the fully-funded project that will develop novel concepts for clean power, heat, and hydrogen production from alternative fuels. To read more and apply for this PhD opportunity follow this link
