Projects per year
I joined the University on 1 April 2001 when I introduced the discipline of marine engineering and developed both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in marine engineering. I am currently Professor of Marine Engineering in the Department. Over the years I also developed several articulation courses with partner Universities in China and Vietnam.
Currently, I am the Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes in the Department, responsible for PGT admissions and course development.
I have organised a number of international conferences in the UK and Asia. I am Fellow of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, Charted engineer, member of a number of international professional bodies. Currently, I am the Director of Postgraduate Taught Programmes.
My research areas cover many aspects in marine engineering, including marine propulsion system design and efficiency improvement, engine combustion and simulation, combined cycle, marine engines’ NOx, SOx and CO2 emission control, ship ballast water treatment, fuel cells marine application, biodiesel application, life cycle analysis on water-borne transport and shipyard green technology. I have published over 110 research papers including 36 internal referred journal papers.
Currently, I contribute to teaching to NM102 introduction to Marine Engineering, NM213 Fundamental of Marine Engineering, NM324 Principles and Application of Marine Machinery, NM421 Ship Power Marine Power and Electrical Systems, NM952 Advanced Marine Engineering, NM980 Onboard Energy Management and Marine Environment Protection
