Anis Allagui joined the Department of Sustainable and Renewable Energy Engineering at the University of Sharjah in the UAE in fall 2013, as an Assistant Professor.
Prior to joining the faculty, Anis was an FQRNT Postdoctoral Fellow at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering of the University of Ottawa (2011-2013) with Prof. Elena A. Baranova, where he studied the electrochemical oxidation reactions of ammonia and ethanol on Pt-Ir and Ni-Pd nanoparticles, and plasma micro-discharges for wastewater treatment.
He received his Ph.D in Mechanical Engineering from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada in 2011 where he worked on the applied and fundamentals of plasma micro-discharges in aqueous solutions including: (i) the synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles for hydrogen evolution reaction and energy storage applications, (ii) the micro-machining of non-conductive materials by spark-assisted chemical engraving, and (iii) the micro- and macroscopic descriptions of the physicochemical characteristics of the discharge regime.
Anis graduated from the Ecole Polytechnique of Nantes in France in 2007 earning a M. Eng. in Mechanical Engineering. He worked in several R&D and project engineering positions at RMG Messtechnick GmbH. (now Honeywell Process Solutions) both in Germany and the UK.
