Dr Nawshad Haque joined CSIRO Energy in 2018. He started with Minerals Division as a Research Scientist (Process Modelling) in 2007. His current research focuses on process, project and technology evaluation applying life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology and techno-economic capabilities using various tools, software and databases. Development of techno-economic models for hydrogen energy systems is the priority project. He also co-ordinates international collaborative research projects on mineral sand and e-waste processing and a training course on mineral processing. A number of PhD projects was completed under his co-supervision.

He contributed to develop a number of novel technologies and flowsheets for 'Mine to Metal' production at CSIRO. His publications and industry reports are widely used internally and externally and assist in decision making. Dr Haque completed his Doctorate with the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Sydney on process modelling, simulation and optimisation. He commenced work as a Materials Scientist at New Zealand Forest Research Institute (Scion) and later seconded to CSIRO Forest Biosciences at Clayton to conduct research on drying process simulation and technology evaluation for industries.
