N’TSOUKPOE Kokouvi Edem is an Assistant Professor in Thermal Engineering at the International Institute for Water and Environmental Engineering (2iE). He is the Training Manager for Energy Engineering Sciences and Techniques, which is coordination of training matters including curricula, examination and marks at the Department of Electrical, Industrial and Energy Engineering of 2iE. Dr. N’TSOUKPOE, who is a member of the African Network of Solar Energy, earned his Diploma of High-level Technician and a Master of Engineering in Water Sanitation, Energy and Civil Engineering at two undergraduate and graduate schools which were amalgamated to form 2iE. After completing his PhD in Energy and Process Engineering at Université de Grenoble (France), he has spent two years in Germany as a Research Associate at the Innovations Incubator of Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, prior to returning to 2iE in 2013. His lectures include Thermodynamics, Refrigeration, Solar Thermal Energy, Thermal Storage and Materials for Thermal Energy Engineering, some of which have been developed by him.His primary research interests are in the field of Solar Thermal Engineering and Thermal sorption processes. Specifically, he is interested in Thermochemical energy storage, Solar cooling and Concentrated solar power; he has published more than 15 high-level articles in international peer-reviewed journals and has supervised several MSc theses and co-supervised PhD theses.
