Professor in Polymer Technology and Material ScienceEgypt
I received my undergraduate bachelor degree in science of chemical engineering from the Military Technical College, Egypt in 1995. Thereafter, I was granted my MSc degree in chemical engineering from the same college in 2010. The MSc Thesis entitled, "Investigation of Advanced Epoxy Resins for Rubber Thermal Insulator-Metal Adhesives" was mainly aiming to work upon the Improvement of some special standard epoxy resin adhesive formulations to obtain a certain product with a somewhat highly improved mechanical, thermal and toughened properties. As a consequence, the innovated formulations were further employed in the modified thermal insulation system of high temperature applications. Later on, I got my PhD degree in chemical engineering from Alexandria University, Egypt in 2020. The PhD Thesis entitled, “Modification & Application of Novel Styrene Butadiene Rubber (SBR) Nano-Composites Using Natural Reinforcing Materials” under supervision of two of the esteemed Professors in the current research field, Prof. Dr/ Sayed Abd El-bary & Prof. Dr/ Hasan Farag, was greatly focusing on the incorporation of the cellulosic biomass component obtained from some agricultural waste materials into some synthetic styrene butadiene rubber (SBR) composites to be applied in some engineering polymeric rubbery products with significant environmental, engineering and economic objectives. Recently, and upon finishing my doctorate, I started to focus my research deeply on the green environment closely associated with the waste management system, circular economy and as a logical pattern with the desired global sustainability.
