Biography Dr. Amthal Al-Gailani is a lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Hull. He is responsible for managing, delivering and redesigning the Chemical Process Thermodynamics Module at Level 2. He has been awarded an Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy (AFHEA) and is currently pursuing a Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA).

Dr Al-Gailani has received his MSc in 2016 and PhD in 2021 in chemical engineering from the University of Leeds, UK. He graduated with first-class honours and was ranked first out of 54 in his BSc study. In his MSc course, he graduated with overall distinction and received the program prize for the best overall performance. His PhD research focused on inorganic mineral scaling in household appliances and systems from potable water.

Dr Al-Gailani has previous experience in the pharmaceutical industry. He is an experienced assistant lecturer with a demonstrated history of working in the higher education industry.
Research Interests Dr Al-Gailani's research focuses on surface engineering, waste utilisation, carbon capture, and environmental remediation. In his PhD, he studied the crystallisation fouling from potable water in heat transfer appliances. Currently, he is involved in developing anti-corrosion and antifouling coatings for Geothermal power plants and offshore wind turbines in the UK, which enhances their efficiency and longevity. This research directly contributes to the transition to clean and renewable energy sources and the growth of sustainable energy production, crucial aspects of mitigating climate change.

Additionally, Dr Al-Gailani is exploring the valorisation of waste materials to create sustainable solutions for carbon capture and wastewater treatment. This innovative waste reduction approach aligns with the UK government's focus on sustainable practices and reducing environmental impact. His research on carbon capture, which involves using innovative materials made from non-recyclable waste, can potentially be a game-changer in reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

Dr Al-Gailani also has expertise in CFD, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, and water research with a strong research background. He has published his research in high-impact factor journals.

Currently, Dr Al-Gailani acts as a primary and co-supervisor of 4 PhD students and 3 MSc students.
Teaching and Learning Dr. Al-Gailani has experience in teaching undergraduate and master's level courses in core chemical engineering subjects. These courses include but are not limited to:
- Thermofluids (Level 4),
- Chemical Process Thermodynamics (Level 5),
- Fluid Mechanics and Particle Technology (Level 5),
- Design Project (Level 6).
Dr. Al-Gailani also has expertise in managing chemical engineering laboratories and designing experiments.
