Dr. Renique J. Murray has been lecturing and conducting postgraduate research in various aspects of mechanical engineering over the past twelve years. He holds both a BSc. and an MPhil degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of the West Indies, with the latter focusing on vibration analysis of rotating machines. He also holds a PhD. in Process and Utilities Engineering from the University of Trinidad and Tobago, in the area of renewable fuel technology and power generation.

Dr. Murray has lectured undergraduate courses in the fields of Applied Mechanics and Thermodynamics, including Engineering Dynamics, Mechanical Vibrations and Thermodynamics. His early research work has focused primarily on rotating machines, examining alternative signal processing approaches to fault diagnosis in power generating equipment. Since then, he has developed a keen interest in the use of engineering technologies for empowering developing communities. Accordingly, his research emphases have grown to include renewable energy technologies and the design and development of machines for agri-processing and related applications. A core element of his ongoing research is the development and optimization of alternative fuels for use in conventional power generation machinery. He has also recently participated in the BRIDGE solar energy training programme, hosted by TNO and Arizona State University and has successfully completed the NABCEP exam. He currently serves as a development engineer in the department’s MMERC, where he facilitates the development of industry-academia partnerships, manages projects and continues to further his research interests.

A strong advocate for ethical standards in professionalism, Dr. Murray is a member of the Global Leadership Interlink (GLI), a professional network of values-based leaders, with several chapters around the world. He currently serves on the global strategic leadership team and has been appointed a Director for campus operations. In this capacity he mentors and facilitates the development of students and young professionals. He is also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers of Trinidad and Tobago and serves as an interim committee member of the mechanical division.
