My educational background:
- 2012: BEng Honors in Mechatronics Engineering (First Class) - The University of Nottingham
- 2014: MSc in Energy Technology - The National University of Malaysia. My MSc project was on the techno-economic analysis of PV and solar dish Stirling engines for decentralised power generation.
-2015 -- Present: PhD in Sustainable Energy - Hamad bin Khalifa University, Qatar. This PhD program is a multi-disciplinary program focusing on sustainable development. My Ph.D. thesis is on the application of renewable energy technologies in sea-water desalination (concentrated sola e. This thesis has so far resulted in four peer-reviewed publications and two awards.

- My detailed profile can be found in my LinkedIn page: You can also learn more about my work in my personal website: This website is a personal initative I started in 2016 to create a sense of awareness among the public (particularly in my country Sudan) about solar power technologies.

Research Interests

-Solar thermal technology
-Solar power plants modelling
-TEA and LCA of renewable energy systems
- Desalination technology

In addition to the above, I am highly interested in rural electrification in developing world countries using renewable energies and innovative business and finance models in the solar industry.
