Brief Biography

Amin Paykani is a Lecturer in Sustainable Propulsion Systems in the School of Engineering and Materials Science (SEMS) at Queen Mary University of London. Prior to joining QMUL, Amin served as a Senior Lecturer in Automotive Engineering at the Department of Engineering, University of Hertfordshire, UK. He earned his PhD in Automotive Engineering from Iran University of Science and Technology in 2016. Before his role at the University of Hertfordshire, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH), where he focused on studying "optimal fuel blends in natural gas-fueled SI engines". Currently, Amin is actively involved in ongoing projects related to zero-carbon combustion systems and thermal management of electrified propulsion systems. He is always looking for high-quality PhD students and postgraduate visitors. If you are interested in any of the topics/areas, please contact me for more details.
