Dr. Ashraf M. Elmoustaf, works as an associate professor at the Irrigation and Hydraulics Department, Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University. His work focuses on the Hydrology, hydro-informatics, River Engineering, and GIS application in water engineering.

He teaches a few water related topics (i.e. Engineering Hydrology, Dam Engineering, Irrigation and Drainage Engineering, and others) for both graduate and post graduate classes.

His research varies between water related branches; he had publish several manuscripts in related peer reviewed journals through his work and post graduate studies under his supervision. He is also a reviewer for specialized journals in the field.

Among these researches, water resources management, flood control and inundation studies the stormwater management in arid environment, hydrologic and hydraulic studies/analysis. Also Conducted advanced studies and modeling for hydraulic simulation, water quality and sedimentation studies for several entities such as bridges and lagoons using the most up-to-date tools and techniques in such filed.

He launched a YouTube channel of educational material for engineering hydrology in Arabic language to help the student and young professionals in Egypt and the ME working in this field. He is the founder and GM of (AIECon) consulting office (since 2006), specialized in water engineering, flood protection, wet infrastructure, hydrodynamics studies and had carried out several related project in the ME and Africa of mega and medium scale using advanced (1D and 2D) modeling techniques.

Dr. Ashraf has participated and is now involved in multinational projects with academic infinities in Germany, Turkey, USA, Jordan, Netherlands and many African countries.
