Md Golam Kibria, PhD.


Dr. Kibria is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering at University of Calgary, Canada. He received MSc and PhD degrees from McMaster and McGill University, respectively. He worked as Banting Fellow at University of Toronto. He is interested in artificial photosynthesis, nanomaterials, heterogeneous catalysis, system design, techno-economic and life-cycle analysis for sustainable synthesis of renewable fuels and feedstocks, including electro- /photo-catalysis for CO2 conversion and water splitting for sustainable energy and environment. He has published over 45 peer-reviewed articles in refereed Journals, including Science, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Energy and Environmental Science, Journal of American Chemical Society, 3 book-chapters, 5 patents (filed) and over 50 conference presentations in the broad area of Artificial Photosynthesis. Dr. Kibria is a recipient of Academic Gold Medal, Tomlinson Doctoral fellowship from McGill University, Green Talents Award from German Federal Ministry etc.
