   Biografi/ Biography :
  • Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mahendra Rao is currently a senior research fellow at the Fuel Cell Institute, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia. He was awarded the PhD degree from the Imperial College London in 2012 in the field of fuel cell engineering. His current research focuses on solid oxide fuel cells, gasification of biomass and hydrogen energy. In SOFC, his research focusses on both conventional SOFC and proton-conducting SOFCs, especially in the materials development for low temperature SOFCs. He is active in writing journals focusing on fuel cells and hydrogen energy. He has published more than 90 articles in international journals and more than 20 articles in proceedings of national and international conferences. He has a close collaboration with the SOFC team from Imperial college with some publication in high impact journals. In 2018, he was awarded as one of the outstanding publishers in the science field, namely “Anugerah Bitara UKM 2018” from UKM. Currently, he is actively focused on the development of 1 kW SOFC prototype for application using biogas as fuel.
