Syed is currently working as a Research Associate at Cardiff University’s School of Engineering. He has received his PhD from Cardiff University and his MSc and BEng with 1st class honours from Cranfield University and University of Hertfordshire, respectively. His PhD research was focused on NO formation and measurements using laser diagnostics in various fuel blends. His research is focused on experimental and numerical characterisation of alternative, low carbon fuels for power generation, as well as in aviation and transport industries. He specialises in advanced optical and laser diagnostics systems. He has authored and co-authored various journal/conference publications on the topic of ammonia as an alternative fuel.
