Prof Khamid Mahkamov

Professor

Department: Mechanical and Construction Engineering

Khamid Mahkamov has MEng and PhD  in Mechanical Engineering  from Bauman Moscow Technical University in the field of Heat Engines.  Prior to joining Northumbria University in 2011  he worked in the Academy of Sciences (USSR, 13 years),   at Leeds University (Research Fellow, 2 years) and  in the Energy Group of the School of Engineering and Computing Sciences of Durham University (9 years) where he held various academic positions. 

Professor Mahkamov is a member of Editorial Board of the Journals of Renewable Energy (Elsevier) and Energetika - Proceedings of CIS Higher Education Institutions (Minsk, Belarus). He is also a member of International Council for Stirling Cycle Machines and a part of Membership Committee of Energy Institute (UK). In 2010 he won IMECHE Harold Disney Prize for the best 2009 paper in the power industry.

He teaches modules related to Thermo-Fluids  and Renewable and Sustainable Energy Technologies.
