   Biografi/ Biography :

  • Kamaruzzaman Sopian graduated with the BS Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1985, the MS in Energy Resources University of Pittsburgh in 1989 and PhD in Mechanical Engineering from the Dorgan Solar Laboratory, University of Miami-Coral Gables. His main contributions are in solar radiation modeling and resource assessment, advanced solar photovoltaic systems (grid-connected photovoltaic, solar powered regenerative fuel cell, solar hydrogen production, thin film silicon solar cell) and advanced solar thermal systems (solar cooling, solar heat pump, solar assisted drying, combined photovoltaic thermal or hybrid collector). He has 10 patents, 15 patents pending, 6 copyrights, and 1 trademark for his innovation in renewable energy technology. The innovation and invention in renewable energy technology have won over 90 medals in national and international innovation and invention competitions including special innovation awards . He was conferred the Darjah Dato’ Paduka Mahkota Perak by His Royal Highness The Sultan of Perak in 2013. A Fellow of the Malaysia Academy of Sciences and listed in the 2019 and 2020 Highly Cited Researchers by the Web of Science Group, Clarivate Analytics.
