Research summary

Abdul Hye joined the Centre for Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Research in March 2018 as part of the CDT. He graduated from KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden in 2014 with a Master of Science in Energy Innovation, funded by European Institute of Technology (InnoEnergy).

Abdul’s current research aims at low and high temperature fuel cell system integration to electric vehicle.

Abdul is funded through the EPSRC CDT  in Fuel Cells and their fuels: EP/L015749/1.


MSc in Energy Innovation, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, 2014.

BSc in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, East West University, Bangladesh, 2009


Abdul graduated from his MSc degree in 2014. During the degree, he was taught renewable and clean conventional energy technologies in order to gain an understanding of both.

He gained experience in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and heat transfer modelling while working as a Research Engineer at KTH, Sweden. His research project was financially supported by the Swedish Energy Agency together with Swedish industrial partners.

During his master degree, he was enrolled as a Research Visitor at Aston University under EU FP7 project BRISK where he gained knowledge about sustainable energy processes.

In his senior year undergraduate thesis, Abdul worked in a project based on the IEEE International Future Energy Challenge. His group worked collaboratively with a group from BUET, Bangladesh. The topic of his project was Low Cost Wind Turbine Energy Maximizer.


His main research interests lie in the following topics:

High and Low Temperature Fuel Cell System
Electric Vehicle System Design
Energy System modelling
Energy Storage
CFD modelling
Renewable Energy

Other activities

Abdul is a co-founder of Rasuta Energy Ltd. The main goal of his organisation is to design and build sustainable shelters for poor and underprivileged people.

He has been volunteering with a few international charities (UK based) since early 2017.
