Dr. Faisal Ahmed
Assistant Professor, Chemical Engineering
Area of Interest: Process Modeling and Simulation; Process Monitoring, Operation, Control and Optimization; Process Data Modeling and Prediction
Tel # (Off): 111-001-007   (150)

Dr. Faisal Ahmed has completed his Bechelors degree in Chemical Engineering from Mahran University, Jamshoro. After some marketing and industrial experience he was awarded with HEC scholarship for MS in South Korea. After his MS, he served COMSATS institute of Information and technology as a lecturer and was again awarded with HEC scholarship for PhD in South Korea in 2012. 

Experience in Process Data Modeling using MATLAB has provided him hands-on experience to develop software sensors for the difficult-to-measure quality variables in engineering industries, e.g. Melt-Index of high density polyethylene in LG petrochemicals, Korea.  He has also developed a soft sensor for the successful real-time predictions of NOx emissions from coal-fired power plant, Taean power plant, Korea


He has published many international journal articles on above mentioned projects. Currently he is working on reduction of NOx emissions from coal fired power plant using artificial intelligence and stochastic optimization, and tuning of controllers using stochastic optimization.
