Biography

Dr. Abdul-Salam is an applied economist with long-standing research interest in energy economics. A significant aspect of his work involves economic modelling using constrained optimisation and empirical analysis techniques. He is an expert in GAMS (General Algebraic Modelling Systems), MATLAB and STATA software. His previous research focused on issues related to access to energy in developing countries; and design, development and maintenance of standalone and/or web-based economic assessment software.  More recently however, his research is focused on oil and gas economics, with emphasis on the UK Continental Shelf. He currently holds the University of Aberdeen Strategic Investment Position for research in Oil and Gas Economics with a focus on North Sea Decommissioning.

Dr. Abdul-Salam is part of the Aberdeen Centre for Research in Energy Economics and Finance (ACREEF). Within the University of Aberdeen Business School, he is programme director of the MSc/LLM Petroleum, Energy Economics and Law programme and the MSc Energy Economics and Finance programme. Prior to joining the University of Aberdeen, he worked as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Energy Economics Research and Policy (CEERP) at the Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, UK. Within CEERP, he was involved in high dimensional data analytics and database management towards the publication of the BP Statistical Review of World Energy and the BP Energy Outlook. He is an Honorary Research Fellow at the James Hutton Institute in Aberdeen; an Affiliated Member of CEERP; and has served as consultant for the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science. He has refereed for several international journals including 'Energy Economics', 'Energy Policy' and 'Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews'.
