Abdulbaset Alazhare

Award: Fulbright Irish Student Award

Institution: Trinity College Dublin

Year: 2024

Abdulbaset Alazhare is a PhD student in civil and environmental engineering at Trinity College Dublin. He earned his BEng in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Limerick in 2021. His research focuses on developing data-driven twin digital models for wind farms using artificial neural networks. These models capture the complex aerodynamic interactions between wind turbines in a wind farm and aim to reduce computational time compared to traditional numerical simulations, which may assist in enabling real-time monitoring of wind turbine structural integrity and fatigue. As a Fulbright awardee, Abdulbaset will conduct a six-month research program at the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), collaborating with top scientists on numerical simulations and machine-learning applications for wind farm controllers. Abdulbaset also actively engages in community service, representing engineering postgraduates in Trinity College’s Student Union and on the School of Engineering Executive Committee.
