[Mindset Public Talk] The planet is warming up… How can engineering help?

We are pleased to invite you to October’s Mindset Public Talk. This month we will discuss about how engineering can help to deal with important environmental challenges, including climate change. Our guest speaker will be Dr Ernesto Hernandez, colleague at the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. We will also have a special response from Dr Amirhossein Malakahmad, Associate Professor at the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. The talk will be on 28 Oct at 6 pm at KLTC, Jalan Conlay (details below).

This event is one of Mindset’s Public Talks – monthly events aimed to a general audience including academics, government officers, NGOs, people from the relevant industries, and any person with an interest on environmental issues. We are looking forward to see you in this and future Mindset events.

About the Talk

Inspired in the exponential achievements in modern history, Ernesto Hernandez will give us a different perspective on global warming. He embarks into the journey of showing SciTech solutions, not aiming to save the Earth from its inevitable death but to help it last longer as a livable global home for us all.

Dr Ernesto Hernandez, Associate Professor at the University of Nottingham, is a life scientist and chemical engineer – an unusual but perhaps the right profile to tackle current challenges in health, food, water and energy. As an undergraduate, he created what he calls Bioinspired Chemical Engineering: based on inspiration in nature to apply the tenets of chemical engineering to address grand challenges faced by humanity.

Ernesto uses microbes and their products for a variety of purposes, such as to clean water, air, soil and sludge, to convert a variety of wastes into fuel or to ease the flow of oil in deep underground oil reservoirs at tremendously high temperatures and pressures. Ernesto pioneers the field of designing artificial bioenvironments with biomolecular evolution, hoping to accelerate the capture of smoky carbon dioxide to reduce its threatening effects on Earth due to global warming. Ernesto has held positions in America and Europe, in the chemical industry and in several universities, including the University of Manchester.

Dr. Amirhossein Malakahmad is an Associate Professor, Deputy Head and MSc Environmental Engineering Program Manager in the Civil Engineering Department of the Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). His research focuses on solid waste management, refinery wastewater treatment and carcinogenicity assessment of wastewater. He has received numerous awards including best education delivery awards, best science and engineering design awards, invention, innovation & technology award, and publication awards.
