The City alumna has been celebrated among the ‘best, brightest and bravest women in engineering’.
Dr Nausheen Basha (PhD Mechanical Engineering, 2021), has been listed among the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) Top 50 Women in Engineering, which was announced on 23rd June 2022, International Women in Engineering Day (#INWED).
#INWED 2022 celebrated the “best, brightest and bravest women in engineering, the inventors and innovators who dare to be part of the solution and are helping to build a brighter future.”
Nausheen, a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and Project Manager at Imperial College London (whose City PhD was supervised by Professor Ahmed Kovacevic), is delighted to have been listed:
“Winning the WES Top 50 Women in Engineering award alongside some of the bravest, brightest, and best women engineers in the UK is an absolute honour.”
Last year, her PhD research was recognised by the Institute of Refrigeration (IOR) and she received the prestigious Ted Perry Award.
Her previous work to develop air compressors at City was deployed in supplying oxygen cylinders during the crucial COVID-19 pandemic intervention in India.
At Imperial, Nausheen manages a UKRI-funded project, called PREMIERE, which uses AI to create the next generation of ultra-fast predictive models in multiphase flow systems which deal with the flow of gas, liquid, and, potentially, solids flowing simultaneously in pipes, channels, and reactors.
PREMIERE seeks to better understand the behaviour of these flow patterns and deploys intelligent computer simulations to predict how these patterns can be influenced for the better - whether the flow is in the body or a chemical plant. The aim is to enhance productivity and efficiency across manufacturing, energy, and healthcare.
Professor Kovacevic said:
“Many congratulations to Nausheen for receiving this prestigious recognition. It was my pleasure to supervise Nausheen during her challenging PhD studies at City. She produced excellent results which helped to improve the efficiency and reliability of screw compressors for Kirloskar, our industrial partner. It is not surprising that she has made such amazing progress so far. I wish her even greater success and further recognition for her work.”
