Ashenafi received his MSc degree in Solar Energy Engineering from Dalarna University, Sweden in 2016. He did his thesis (Analysing the Effect of Soiling on the Performance of a PV System) as well as Erasmus outgoing Internship at Institute for Energy Technology (IFE), Kjeller, Norway. In addition, he did an internship at Glava Energy Center (GEC), Arvika, Sweden during the summer of 2015.

Furthermore, Ashenafi received his MSc in Physics from Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU), Norway in 2012 and from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia in 2007 as well as BEd in Physics from Mekelle University back in 2005.

Ashenafi also worked as a lecturer at Mekelle University, Mekelle, Ethiopia from 2007-2010 as well as from 2013-2014.

Currently Ashenafi works as a PhD researcher at the Centre for Renewable Energy Systems Technology (CREST), Loughborough University in the SOLAR-TRAIN project under the supervision of Prof. Ralph Gottschalg, Dr. Tom Betts and Dr. Jiang Zhu. The research mainly focuses on a combined accelerated stress indoor tests to predict the realistic long-term outcome of a PV module in the terrestrial environment. 

Holder of Norwegian Quota Scholarship Scheme for international students from developing countries in Condensed Matter physics from 2010-2012 at NTNU, Norway as well as the Swedish Institute (SI) scholarship for international students in Solar Energy Engendering at Dalarna University, Sweden from 2014-2016. 

My main research Interest is to work in the renewable energy field particularly in the PV energy sector.
