Associate Professor, Department of Chemical Engineering

Dr. Abhijeet Raj is currently an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering at Khalifa University in Abu Dhabi. He joined the department in 2013.

His research interests are in the areas of combustion, reaction kinetics, pollutant emission reduction, and clean fuel technology. He also conducts modeling and simulation of industrial processes with applications to the oil and gas industry.

His expertise lies in the development of reaction mechanisms, and modeling and experimental studies on the formation of harmful and carcinogenic particulate matter and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that are generated during the combustion of transportation fuels such as gasoline and diesel in engines and are added to the environment. He focuses on the development of innovative techniques to reduce the formation of these pollutants.

Dr. Raj has published numerous articles in renowned refereed journals and conference proceedings. He has also delivered several presentations in international conferences. Furthermore, he serves as a reviewer for reputed international journals in the areas of combustion, fuels, physical chemistry and reaction kinetics.
