Profile Summary

Dr Fareez is an assistant professor at Heriot-Watt University Malaysia. He has been delivering thermofluids-related and general mechanical engineering courses for several high learning institutes in Malaysia and Japan. He completed his PhD in mechanical engineering (automotive) at Meiji University, Japan, specialising in developing highly efficient Diesel combustion strategy. He worked as CAE engineer at Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation, Japan in establishing model-based design MBD simulation for entire full electric truck vehicle for energy consumption optimization. He is fluent in Malay, English and Japanese.

His research interest is in fundamental study of IC engine combustion mechanism including spray, atomization, mixing, flow, and emissions formation via optical diagnostics and simple 1D model approach. He is highly opened for collaboration with CFD expert in modelling and designing next generation IC engine, and collaboration with MBD expert in optimizing electric vehicle entire vehicle system particularly cooling system. He is motivated to develop highly efficient and clean mobility system based on sound fundamental knowledge towards net zero carbon society.
