Ammar Gwesha is currently a graduate student pursuing his Ph.D. program in Mechanical Engineering at The University of Arizona. He received his Bachelor of Science’s degree from University of Tripoli in Libya. After obtaining his Master of Science’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from The University of Arizona (UA) in 2012, he returned to Libya, where he joined the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering at University of Tripoli. Prior to joining UA as a Ph.D. student in 2019, his teaching experience has centered around thermo-fluid sciences. In addition to teaching at University of Tripoli, he collaborated on research with colleagues.
His research currently focuses on renewable energy, the convective heat transfer characteristics of molten chloride salts used as thermal storage mediums in concentrating solar power (CSP) applications, and the optimization of photovoltaic (PV) solar panels.
