Professor Rajan Jose supervises the Nanostructured Renewable Energy Materials Laboratory in the Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) and is the Associate Editor-in-Chief of the Springer Nature journal “Materials Circular Economy” ( He has served as the Dean of Research of UMP during Feb 2016 – Aug 2019 and a member of various committees of UMP and Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia.
He has investigated nanostructured perovskite ceramics for microwave and superconducting electronics during doctoral research at the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR), Trivandrum, India and has received PhD degree in the year 2002. He has contributed to the science and engineering of diverse range of materials including metals and alloys, luminescent quantum dots for biological and energy applications, glass and glass ceramics for quantum electronics, and electrochemical materials for energy conversion and storage. He was employed as a scientist at the Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research (India), AIST (Japan), Toyota Technological Institute (Japan), and the National University of Singapore (Singapore) before joining UMP. He has published over 220 papers in Web of Science (Thomson Reuters) indexed journals which are cited nearly 11600 times with an h-index of 56 according to Google Scholar database ( He holds 25 patents. He has supervised 6 Postdoctoral, 23 Doctoral, and 10 Master’s researchers.
His current research interests include sustainable materials, circular economy, data science, renewable energy devices; most of his research is on the structure – property relationship in materials for a desired device functionality.

Dr. Mohamed Gamal El-Din is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Alberta. His research focuses on the fundamentals of advanced and innovative treatment approaches for water and wastewater (municipal and industrial such as oil and gas). Since 2011, he holds an NSERC Senior Industrial Research Chair (IRC) in Oil Sands Tailings Water Treatment. He is also one of the Theme Leads of the Future Energy Systems (FES) theme on Resilient Reclaimed Land and Water Systems, a 75-million multidisciplinary research from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund. Because of his contributions in the area of oil sands process water treatment/reclamation, in 2017, Dr. Gamal El-Din received the Alberta Science and Technology Leadership (ASTech) Foundation Award for Innovation in Oil Sands Research. In 2019, he was appointed Jinshan Distinguished Professor at Jiangsu University and in 2020 he was awarded Research Chair in Environmental Engineering, College of Environmental Science and Engineering at Tongji University (China). His research work has resulted in important advancements in the area of advanced oxidation and ozone treatment, membrane separation and biological processes. Another part of his research program has centered on the development of new materials and their applications in water and wastewater treatment. Dr. Gamal El-Din’s research program also focuses on the development of cost-effective and simple, yet highly efficient treatment systems for rural communities in both industrialized and developing countries. Dr. Gamal El-Din’s research has resulted in 255 refereed journal papers, 94 refereed conference papers, 369 conference and workshop presentations, 52 technical reports, and 7 book chapters and a number of other articles. Currently, Dr. Gamal El-Din’s h-index is 55 (10044 citations) as per Google Scholar.
