Biographical details

Associate Professor Ali Abbas received both his Bachelors and PhD in Chemical Engineering from University of Sydney, Australia. He held a lecturing contract at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Sydney before joining, in 2004, the new School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He was appointed, in 2007, to the lecturing position at UNSW Asia in Chemical Engineering in the Division of Engineering Science and Technology. Associate Professor Abbas returned to the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Sydney in 2007.

His engineering research is in the area of Process Systems Engineering with emphasis on model-based optimal operation of particulate, energy and bio- systems. He has strong interests in education and teaching with particular focus on curriculum design and integration as well as on experiential e-learning and virtual worlds.

Research interests

Associate Professor Ali Abbas focuses on the application of high-fidelity mathematical models that enhance efficiencies and create value in the process and biomedical industries, with a primary focus on energy systems.
