Dr

Abdullah Bajwa

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Thermal Propulsion Systems

Biography

Dr Abdullah Bajwa received a degree in mechanical engineering from Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute (Pakistan) in 2013, after which he worked as a turbomachinery engineer before embarking to the US on a Fulbright Fellowship to pursue graduate studies in mechanical engineering at Texas A&M University. There he worked at the Advanced Engines Research Lab on stationary, natural gas two-stroke engines. His PhD work investigated gas exchange in such engines and developed new models to improve their emissions control.

Towards the end of his PhD, Abdullah started teaching remotely at Habib University – Pakistan’s sole liberal arts university – and joined full time as an assistant professor in 2020. There he taught courses in engineering design, manufacturing, CAE, and thermodynamics; and was in charge of the design workshop. After teaching for a year, Abdullah moved to Oxford to start his current postdoctoral researcher position at the Centre of Excellence for Hybrid Thermal Propulsion Systems in the department of Engineering Science.
