Dr. Alasdair Cairns

Dr. Alasdair Cairns
University of Nottingham, UK
Keynote Speaker

Professor Alasdair Cairns is Director of the Powertrain Research Centre at the University of Nottingham, UK, with 22 years’ experience in light and heavy duty engines and fuels. His early career involved 10 years with engineering consultancy MAHLE Powertrain, managing large collaborative R&D programmes. He manages a large team and funding portfolio of £8M in current UK government funded projects across marine, construction and stationary power generation applications, with several current projects on ammonia and hydrogen fuels. He has previously received prizes for related research from both the UK Institution of Mechanical Engineers and SAE International.

Dr. Pedro Coelho

Dr. Pedro Coelho
Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal
Keynote Speaker

Professor Pedro Coelho graduated in Mechanical Engineering in 1984 and received his Ph.D. in 1992 from Instituto Superior Técnico (IST), University of Lisbon, Portugal. He is professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of IST, being currently the head of the Department. He has about 100 papers published in international journals, and more than 120 papers presented at international conferences. He is co-author of a book on Combustion (in Portuguese) for undergraduate and master students. His research is in the field of numerical simulation of heat transfer and combustion problems. Specific areas of interest are radiation models, turbulence-radiation interaction, computational heat transfer, turbulent diffusion flames, mild combustion and industrial combustion equipment. He is member of the Eurotherm Committee for the Advancement of Thermal Sciences and Heat Transfer, member of the Scientific Council, Assembly and Executive Committee of the International Centre of Heat and Mass Transfer, member of the Assembly for International Heat Transfer Conferences and member of the Assembly of the World Conference (AWC) on Experimental Heat Transfer, Fluid Mechanics, and Thermodynamics. He is associate editor of the J. Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer, Int. J. Thermal Sciences, and member of the advisory board of Computational Thermal Sciences, Heat Transfer Research and Energy for a Clean Environment.
