Dr. Nedjib Djilali

Dr. Nedjib Djilali
University of Victoria, Canada
Plenary Speaker

Ned Djilali is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Director of the Institute for Integrated Energy Systems at the University of Victoria. His research focuses on transport phenomena and energy systems analysis. The applications of this research have ranged from aerodynamics and zero-emission vehicles to electrochemical energy conversion and the water-energy nexus. Prior to joining UVic, he was staff specialist with the Advanced Aerodynamics Department at Bombardier Inc., where he worked on the design of the Regional Jet. At UVic he has established an internationally recognized research laboratory in the areas of thermofluid science, energy systems and fuel cell science and technology, and trained many graduates who have become leaders in academia and industry.
Dr. Djilali has advised and collaborated with numerous industry partners, organizations and government agencies working on the development and adoption of zero emission energy technologies, including Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, Ballard, the BC Climate Action Secretariat, and the Wind Energy Strategic Network. He holds 14 patents and has published over 200 journal papers with a h-index of 67 (Google Scholar). Ned Djilali is a Thomson-Reuters Highly Cited Researcher, and a Fellow of both the Royal Society of Canada (Academy of Science) and the Canadian Academy of Engineering.
