Mathew George is a Consultant at IIHS’ Sustainable Energy Lab. He holds a PhD in Solar Energy from University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with a specialisation in Phase Change Materials (PCM). His research focused on enhancing the thermophysical properties of the PCM with the addition of nanomaterials, with potential applications in battery thermal management, building energy storage, photovoltaic panel thermal management and electronic cooling.


Mathew has half a decade of experience as a faculty member at engineering institutions in Haryana, Kerala, and Karnataka. Over time, he evolved his teaching approach from purely lecture-based to student-driven, project-based content aimed at intrinsically motivating learners. He implemented blended learning and gamification to increase student engagement and channel their energy into productive learning. In addition to teaching, he worked on a project with Atria Power to assess the feasibility of offshore wind energy along the Gulf of Mannar and the costing for data collection using the Wind LIDAR system. He has also worked in the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning domain, having worked for a year as a mechanical design engineer for mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems and service engineer troubleshooting Variable Refrigerant Flow systems.


Mathew completed his bachelor’s degreeee in Mechanical Engineering from LBS College of Engineering, Kasaragod, Kerala, and Master’s degree in Mechatronics from Amity University, Noida, Uttar Pradesh. During his masters, he developed a model and control programming to sort fruits and vegetables using image processing. During his PhD, he was the recipient of University of Malaya Student Scholarship fro, 2019 to 2021).
