Hossam A.Gabbar, SM IEEE - Chair Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Chapter
Dr. Hossam A.Gabbar is Associate Professor and director of Energy Safety & Control Lab, in the Faculty of Energy Systems and Nuclear Science, University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). He obtained his Ph.D. degree (Safety Engineering) from Okayama University (Japan). He obtained his BSc (First Class of Honors) in the area of Computer and Automatic Control, Alexandria University. He is specialized in process control and safety engineering where he initiated several research and industrial projects, which are applied on different disciplines such as oil & gas, energy, nuclear power, and manufacturing and production systems. Prior to moving to Canada, he was Associate Professor in Okayama University (Japan) where he established his research lab in the area of safety and green energy and production systems. He worked in Tokyo Institute of Technology and Japan Chemical Innovative Institute (JCII) where he participated in national projects related to process control and safety engineering for green production systems, batch process operation, oil & gas operation design & verification, biomass production systems, and plastic production chain with recycling. He developed new methods for control recipe synthesis and verification, safety design, and quantitative and qualitative fault diagnosis and simulation. He proposed new process modeling and simulation techniques for green hybrid energy supply chain planning and operation, which are proposed to facilitate the smooth and optimum implementation of renewable and clean energy technologies. He is a Senior Member of SMCS IEEE, the founding chair of SMC Chapter - Hiroshima Section, the founding chair of the technical committee on Intelligent Green Production Systems (IGPS), and member of the technical committee on System of Systems and Soft Computing (IEEE SMCS). He is invited speaker in several Universities and international events, and PC/ chair / co-chair of several international conferences. He is the author of more than 90 publications including books, book chapters, patent, and papers in the area of process control and safety engineering & green hybrid energy systems.
