Yerbol Sarbassov


In 2006, Yerbol graduated from Almaty Institute of Power Engineering and Telecommunications (Kazakhstan) with a mechanical engineering degree. After graduation he worked in industry for two years in a combined heat and power plant (CHP). Between 2009 and 2010 he got his MSc degree at the University of Nottingham in the MSc program “Energy conversion”. Between 2011 and 2013 Yerbol joined a newly formed research group at Private Institute “CER” (Centre for Energy Research) of Nazarbayev University. The research focused on an energy system modelling of Kazakhstan and its integration to a TIMES-MARKAL model developed by IEA. Later Yerbol joined Cranfield University for the doctorate program at the school of engineering. 
Yerbol has visited several well-known universities such as Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IITG India) and Southeast University of China located in Nanjing. 

Research Interests
His PhD topic is the formation of sulfur trioxide in oxy-fired circulating fluidised bed combustion. Mr. Sarbassov has good knowledge in the area of clean coal and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology.
