About me

I am Co-Principal Investigator of two nationally-funded research projects in Egypt about wastewater treatment and smart irrigation in the ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) era. My research involves a wide range of interdisciplinary concepts drawn from mathematics, circuit theory and modelling, statistics, bio-impedance, chaos theory, and security and encryption, among others. It also integrates theoretical and experimental aspects of IoT, renewable energy, the design and application of mem-elements, and water management and agriculture.

AGYA membership allows me to extend my professional and cross-cultural experience to the international level, interacting with diverse people from different disciplinary and research backgrounds.

AGYA provides a unique platform for debating and analysing new technologies and developing dialogue-based responses.

I wish to improve my science communication skills and increase public awareness of the relevance of science for society. As a teacher, the personal growth I gain from AGYA’s training and research activities improves my ability to offer guidance and help empower my (female) students, regardless of their ethnic and social backgrounds. I am grateful for the funding opportunities offered by AGYA, which enable innovative interdisciplinary research.
