Nilay Shah is from Imperial College, London and is a member of the Centre's Coordination Group and is the Research Area Champion for CCS Systems.
Nilay is the Director of the Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE) and co-director of the Urban Energy Systems project at Imperial. His research interests include the application of process modelling and mathematical/systems engineering techniques to analyse and optimise complex, spatially- and temporally-explicit low-carbon energy systems, including hydrogen infrastructures, carbon capture and storage systems, urban energy systems and bioenergy systems. He is also interested in devising process systems engineering methods for complex systems such as large scale supply chains and biorenewable processes, and in the application of model-based methods for plant safety assessment and risk analysis. He has published widely in these areas and is particularly interested in the transfer of technology from academia to industry. He has provided consultancy services on systems optimisation to a large number of process industry and energy companies.
