UHI Outer Hebrides, formerly Lews Castle College, is welcoming international researchers to an event this week showcasing energy engineering developments by local academics.  

UHI-OH says is delighted to welcome Dr Marilize Everts, an acclaimed heat transfer specialist who is Senior Lecturer at the University of Pretoria, South Africa and Alexander von Humboldt Fellow at the University of Bayreuth, Germany.

Dr Everts’ contribution to science and research has been recognised by 30 awards and her findings have been published in the latest heat transfer textbook, “Heat and Mass Transfer: Fundamentals and Applications”, the 6th edition (2019) by Çengel and Ghajar.

Researchers from UHI will also give short presentations on their work, including on multiphase boiling and condensation heat transfer, desalination, supersonic flight, energy systems optimisation, energy meteorology, and project management lessons.

UHI-OH says: "The seminar is a great opportunity to hear about the high-quality research being undertaken at UHI Outer Hebrides. Two seminar sessions will be held and delegates are welcome to attend either or both."

Dr Roy Bartle, Research Fellow at UHI-OH said, “We are delighted to be able to welcome renowned academics such as Dr Everts to UHI Outer Hebrides and also to present the internationally-significant work being done by our research teams here in Stornoway.

"This event is a wonderful opportunity for anyone interested in studying Energy Engineering at all levels from school-leavers to PhD students and beyond, and for public and private sector stakeholders, to find out more about the excellent facilities and expertise we have locally.” 

The energy engineering research seminar runs from 09.00-12.40, followed by lunch, on Thursday 26 May at the UHI-OH campus in Stornoway.

Delegates can register at the following link until 9 am on Wednesday 25 May:

Delegates should register online whether they are attending online or in-person. A link for delegates to join online will be emailed the day before the seminar.
