Dr. Valerie Eveloy holds a Ph.D. degree in mechanical engineering (Dublin City University, Ireland) and a M.Sc. degree in physical engineering (National Institute of Applied Science, France). She has over twenty five years academic and industrial experience in mechanical and energy engineering, and is currently a Professor in the department of mechanical engineering at Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Prior to joining Khalifa University, she was with The Petroleum Institute (now part of Khalifa University), the University of Maryland-College Park, and Nokia. Her current research interests include energy system and process modeling and optimization, energy recovery, multi-generation, hydrogen and other energy vectors from renewable power, decarbonization of energy intensive industries, sustainable cooling, and computational fluid dynamics. She has led a number of sponsored research projects in these areas, and currently leads the Sustainable Energy Policy and Techno-Socio-Economics theme of Abu Dhabi Virtual Research Institute (VRI) on Sustainable Energy Production, Storage, and Utilization. She has authored or co-authored over 130 refereed journal and conference publications, book chapters, and co-edited several international energy conference proceedings. She serves on the editorial board of several energy-related journals and is associate editor of Energy Conversion and Management. She also serves on several international conference program committees focused on energy technologies and electronics thermal management.
