​Yousef Haseli is an Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering and Technology, Central Michigan University. He has conducted research on various subjects in the field of thermofluids and energy sciences for over a decade, and has the experience of working with renowned scientists at some of the world’s top universities. He received a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Eindhoven University of Technology, the Netherlands, followed by a postdoctoral position at Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Dr. Haseli’s research activities have led to one book and over 30 journal articles. He has presented his research findings in numerous international conferences. He is a recipient of several awards, the most distinguished one being the Academic Gold Medal Award of the Governor General of Canada. His research interests include thermochemical conversion of biomass (torrefaction, gasification, pyrolysis), advanced energy conversion systems, clean energy and fuel production, two-phase/reactive flows, and engineering thermodynamics. He has served as a reviewer for about 20 international journals.
