Ahmed Alhusseny was awarded his BSc and MSc in air conditioning and refrigeration engineering from the University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Afterwards, he worked as a member of academic staff at the College of Engineering, University of Kufa, Iraq. Recently, Ahmed has done a PhD research entitled "Heat Transfer Enhancement Using Rotating Metallic Porous Media" at the University of Manchester, UK. He had investigated how to enhance the performance of cooling passages within rotating electrical windings through filling them either fully or partially with high-porosity metal foams. Then, he proposed a procedure to numerically analyse and design rotary regenerators based on a porous media concept, which was found to be sufficient to accurately predict thermal and hydrodynamic patterns in such heat exchangers. More recently, he proposed a combined enhancement way to improve the performance of a double pipe heat exchanger through employing both rotation and metal foam structures. Since May 2016, he has been awarded the PhD degree in the mechanical engineering from the School of Mechanical, Aerospace, and Civil Engineering/ The University of Manchester. Although he has recently back to Iraq and restarted his former job there as a member of academic staff, he is still associated with The University of Manchester as a Visiting Researcher.
