Assistant Professor, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Carleton University

Professor Ahmed Abdulla joined the CU Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering faculty on July 1, 2020. Prof. Abdulla investigates energy system design for deep decarbonization—focusing on the role of disruptive energy technologies that sit at a low level of technical readiness, including energy storage systems, advanced nuclear power, and negative emissions technologies. Prof. Abdulla employs process modeling, systems engineering, engineering economics, and quantitative risk and decision analysis in his research. He also pays special attention to integrating insights from public policy and behavioural science in his models in order to optimize the design and deployment of truly sustainable technologies—ones that are both techno-economically viable and socio-politically acceptable.
