Dr Sheikh Islam

Biography Dr Sheikh Islam (FHEA) is an Academic Strategic Lead (Head of Mechanical Engineering Discipline) at the School of Engineering of the Robert Gordon University. Dr Islam gained his PhD from Robert Gordon University through research on computational fluid dynamics modelling of Proton exchange membrane fuel cell. His research interests include PEM fuel cell as an energy storage device, CFD modelling of multi-phase flows, CFD modelling of wind turbine & heat transfer from finned tube banks, Thermosyphon & fluidized bed heat exchanger for industrial application. Dr Islam is involved in applying computational modelling techniques and optimization to solve some of the most challenging and interesting problems related to emerging energy sources such as fuel cell, process heaters and wind/ tidal turbine.
