ICERT attracts a wide range of researchers in the field of energy research and technology. As a prominent company in the field of energy research and technology, we would like to offer you an exhibit at ICERT. Please visit Events for more information.

We are very happy to announce the following keynote speakers for the International Conference on Energy Research and Technology (ICERT'17):

Dr. Prabhakar R. Bandaru

University of California, San Diego (UCSD), USA

Dr. Cigdem Eskicioglu

University of British Columbia, Canada

Dr. Wen-Feng Lin

Loughborough University, UK

Dr. Prabhakar R. Bandaru

Prab Bandaru is a professor in UCSD’s Mechanical Engineering department, and is also affiliated with the Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Nanoengineering departments. After receiving his Ph.D. from UC, Berkeley, he worked in Applied Materials on non-volatile random access memories and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Electrical Engineering and Physics departments at UCLA on low temperature physics as related to quantum information processing.

Prab Bandaru and his research group are mainly interested in analytical and experimental materials physics and chemistry and related applications, broadly looking at the electrical, thermal, electrochemical, photonic, and mechanical properties of materials at the nano-meso- , and macro-levels. Related research accomplishments range from synthesis of new magneto-optic materials, establishing the maximum efficiency for thermoelectrics, measurement of the electrical conduction at the single molecule level, use of helical and Y-shaped carbon nanostructures for inductors and nanoelectronics, seminal non-contact optical measurements of thin film thermal conductivity, sub 1 nanometer pore diagnostics in single layer graphene, etc. Professor Bandaru has been recognized through awards such as the Flint Seminar lectureship at Yale University, and from the National Science Foundation, and the Scientific American Top 50.

Topic of Keynote: Thermal Metamaterials Harnessing, Directing, and Dissipating Heat through Structural Design

Keynote Abstract

Dr. Cigdem Eskicioglu

Dr. Cigdem Eskicioglu is an Associate Professor at the School of Engineering, University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada. She is also the leader of UBC Bioreactor Technology Group (Website) on UBC’s Okanagan Campus. Her group focuses on advanced anaerobic digester processes for enhanced biogas production, fate of micropollutants in advanced biological treatment processes, side-stream treatment for ammonia removal and odor minimimization.

Topic of Keynote: Emerging Pretreatment Technologies for Enhanced Bioenergy Production from Organic Waste

Keynote Abstract

Dr. Wen-Feng Lin

Professor Lin has particular expertise in physical chemistry, electrochemistry and electrochemical engineering. The primary themes of his research are related to energy, environment and water. He collaborates internationally and has led a significant number of externally funded projects, ranging from fundamental understanding of electro-catalysis at atomic and molecular levels to applied R&D in energy materials, fuel cells, batteries, and ozone generation from water for water treatment and advanced oxidation technologies; resulting in an output of over 160 publications, 6 patents and contributions to 2 spin-outs.
