A. Omran holds a bachelor degree of Chemistry, Information Technology diploma, and Msc. Degree in Physical Chemistry with excellence from Egypt. In 2019, he obtained his MSc. In Chemical Engineering from Texas A&M University with focus on computational catalysis under the supervision of Dr.Nimir Elbashir. In parallel to his academic studies, he has extensive industrial experience in design, commissioning and operation of several petrochemical and the largest LNG plant worldwide. Ahmed is active member of several chemical engineering and chemistry societies including MAIChE (USA), AMIChemE (UK), SFGP (France), SFP (France) and EFCE. Currently a PhD student under supervision of Dr.V. Valtechev and Dr.N. Nesterenko, his work focuses on combining the computational studies (e.g. AI/ML driven DFT, MD and polarizable continuum model) with experimental ones for data-driven multi-scale material and process design for energy transition. In particular, his research focuses on the environmental friendly application of nanoporous clathrate hydrates or “zeolitic ice” for hydrogen storage, CCS, and methane storage and monetization.
Research Highlights : H2 storage in clathrate hydrates, Long-term storage of methane in clathrate hydrates, CO2-CH4 replacement of energy recovery and CCS, Combined gas separation and sequestration in gas clathrate.
