I believe that my efforts made a positive contribution to the education of our students at The Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University in the different fields of electronics, electromagnetics and optical technologies.
I contributed to the development of the characterization and fabrication facilities for optical waveguides at the Optical Communication and Lasers Lab, the development of MEMS-based variable optical attenuators for MEMScAP Egypt, and the establishment of an optical communication and optoelectronic technology center of excellence at the Faculty of Engineering, Ain Shams University for which I served as a manager for about three years.
I conducted research and supervised many graduate student theses in cooperation with other faculty members, and published more than 30 refereed papers on modeling of ion-exchanged waveguides and multimode interference devices, optical MEMs, optical lithography, fiber gyroscopes and multimode optical fiber sensors.
