Personal Profile

Dr. Saady taught graduate and undergraduate courses at the University of Windsor in 2011-2012, then he joined Agriculture and Agri-Foods Canada at the Dairy and Swine Research and Development Centre, Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, Sherbrooke, Quebec. Dr. Saady worked for Bio-Terre Systems Inc. before he joined the Memorial University of Newfoundland in 2016. Dr. Saady is an Environmental Engineer specialized in biotechnologies for waste treatment and converting renewable waste biomass into biofuel and bioenergy such as H2, CH4 and electricity using wet and dry anaerobic digestion and microbial fuel cell. He is licenced as a professional engineer (P.Eng). Dr. Saady published more than 31 peer-reviewed articles of which 5 were single authored. He presented in 10 international conferences in Canada, USA, and India. Dr. Saady served as a member of scientific and program committees for more than 10 international conferences in Canada, USA, and Europe, and served as a member of the organizing committee for 3 conferences. He is the Editor-in-Chief for Advances in Recycling & Waste Management, a peer-reviewed journal, published by Omics International. He also served as a handling editor for the International Journal of Environment and Waste Management (IJEWM) and the International Journal of Environmental Engineering (IJEE) (both are published by Inderscince) from Jan. 2012 to Jan. 2016.
