Dr. Muhammad Sheikh

Job Title
Assistant Professor - Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Electrification Energy Innovation Centre (EIC)
University of Warwick

My name is Dr Muhammad Sheikh, and I am an Assistant Professor in Automotive Engineering and Vehicle Electrification at Warwick manufacturing group WMG, The University of Warwick, UK. I completed my PhD in Engineering from University of Sunderland, UK in 2018 and MSc. in Electrical Engineering from Staffordshire university, UK in 2011. I am currently leading module on Battery Electrochemistry Design and Manufacturing (BEDM) and Automotive Hybridisation and Electrification (AHE) for MSc Sustainable Automotive Electrification course. I am also planning and developing material for Battery training courses at WMG. In the last 10 years, my research has focused primarily on Energy storage systems, I was involved in several successful commercial and research projects including H1PERBAT (Aston Martin Lagonda), Faraday's multiscale modelling (MSM) correlation work, Eatron's cell and module testing (Eatron led with expertise from Istanbul Technical University), Long-term ageing work (Jaguar Land Rover), Transportation safety for safe transport of Lithium-ion batteries, FPT (Fiat Powertrain, Switzerland) testing for heat rejection analysis on high energy and high power density batteries, Edge mobility (Indian E-scooter) for state of health (SoH) estimation, UKBIC formation cycling, Long-term cycling for fully discharge and reduce depth of discharge. I have also worked in collaboration with academic and industrial partners including Aston Martin Lagonda (AML), Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE), Fiat Powertrain (FPT), UKBIC, National Composite Centre (NCC), Unipart, Coventry University, University of Birmingham, Imperial College London (UCL) and Lancaster University. For above mentioned projects, I have used various testing and characterisation techniques including EIS, CC-CV, GITT, HPPC, Multisine test, Drive cycle profile, relaxation, DCIR, OCV, RPT, teardown analysis, coin cell fabrication, three-electrode cells, and capacity analysis. I have published my research in various well-reputed journals and presented my findings in the international conferences.
