Research Interests

Dr Md Abdus Salam has extensive experiences in strengthening industry-relevant research and
development and in delivering educational excellence. He has obtained a PhD in Chemical Engineering
from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia after completion of his research on “Hydrogen
Adsorption of Nanostructured Hydrotalcite based Mixed Oxides Adsorbents”. He has contributed as
faculty member of Chemical Engineering department, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia
after completion of his PhD. He has to-date published more than 50 papers in journals and conference
proceedings both locally and internationally. His active involvement in research, invention and
innovation in Hydrogen economy research (Hydrogen Production and Storage), catalysis and the
density functional theory based molecular simulation of the processes made him active member of
mission oriented researcher and established a solid track record in the field of hydrogen economy. Dr
Salam has been supervising PhD and MS students (Mode of research) since 2013. He has been an
Associate Member of the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) since 2013 and a Affiliate
Member of the Institution of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM) since 2015.
