Dr. Ali AlHammadi is an Abu Dhabi based professor and innovator. He is an assistant professor at one of the most prestigious universities in UAE, at Khalifa University. He teaches Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the university and has a lot of expertise in the field. He received a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from Rice University, Houston, Texas, USA. He got the B.S in Chemical Engineering from Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. He has expertise in reaction engineering, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics.
Dr. Ali AlHammadi focuses on the problems which are prevalent in the oil industry. In the times of industrialization, more crude oils are produced but more problems are also created. With more crude oils produced, wellbores, chocks, pumps, and reservoirs are clogged by asphaltene. Dr. Ali AlHammadi works with asphaltene’s effects and how it can cause changes in other variables.
Dr. Ali AlHammadi is also involved in studying nanotechnology. His research is concerned with nanotubes and fiber-reinforced composites. Experiments are being established to purify nanotubes by removing by-products which hinder the full capabilities of nanotubes and study their scalability. Such nanotubes composites can be used for better electrical efficiency, lower densities, and extreme temperature applications.
After being involved in a wide range of studies, he came up with a new idea for a business. He is the co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of a start-up called “Farmin”. Farmin targets one of the major problems with farming: deciding which land to cultivate. The start-up has an innovative and fresh idea to integrate artificial intelligence and satellite imagery. Through satellites, Farmin evaluates different lands and assesses the lands based on their strengths and weaknesses. The company provides frequent updates and statistics for the farms; any deviance is quickly reported to the farm’s owner so fast action can be taken. Farmin’s main motive is to encourage sustainable farming and reduce costs.
Dr. Ali AlHammadi was honored to showcase Farmin capabilities to H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Al-Homoud Al-Sabah, Director General of Environment Public Authority in Kuwait and H.E. Dr. Abdul Hussain Bin Ali Mirza, President of Sustainable Energy Authority in Bahrain.
Dr. Ali AlHammadi has a great contribution to the research with other co-authors. His most recent article in 2019 is on “ The role of characterization in the accuracy of PF-SAFT equation of state modeling of asphaltenes phase behavior”. In 2017 he produces two articles one in relates to “Effect of the gas composition and gas/oil ratio on Asphaltene deposition” and the other one is about the “Modeling the Polystyrene–Asphaltenes–Toluene Mixture Using the Perturbed-Chain Form of Statistical Associating Fluid Theory Equation of State”. In 2016 he has worked “Extensions of the SAFT model for complex association in the bulk and interface”. In 2015 he has publication relates “Comparison of cubic-plus-association and perturbed-chain statistical associating fluid theory methods for Modeling asphaltene phase behavior and pressure-volume–temperature properties”. His articles are published in well-reputed Journals and these articles are also followed and cited by many research scholars.
He usually participates in various Talk Shows, Seminars, and Interviews. He enjoys joining in discussions and brainstorming in debates to learn alternative opinions that can spark innovation.
