Speaker Biography

Dr Samir Mushrif is currently appointed as Assistant Professor at the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He received his PhD from McGill University in Canada on theoretical multiscale modelling of nano-carbon materials for hydrogen storage and catalysis. During his Ph.D., he received the prestigious NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) post-graduate doctoral fellowship. His work on carbon materials was awarded twice, in 2008 and 2009, by the Materials Research Society in their Annual Conference in Boston, USA. In 2010, Samir won the NSERC postdoctoral fellowship and joined the Catalysis Center for Energy Innovation (a US Department of Energy funded research center) and the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Delaware, as a research fellow. His work in the USA focused on developing novel processes and catalysts for the conversion of biomass to chemicals and fuels. This work was highlighted in Nature Chemistry and in the Science Daily, USA. Samir joined the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering at Nanyang Technological University in August 2012 as an assistant professor and will continue his work in the areas of nanocarbon materials and biomass conversion technology. The general focus of the research in the group is to characterize (i) the synthesis and behaviour of catalytic and energy storage materials, particularly carbon based and active metal doped materials, and (ii) the chemistry of lignocellulosic biomass conversion, in the presence of these materials, using a multiscale modelling and simulation approach. The hierarchical multiscale approach, developed on the foundation of first principles/quantum mechanical laws and in synergy with experimental findings are implemented for materials and process design.
