My Bio

My Bio

I am currently the Head of Solar and Space Research Department, National Research Institute of Astronomy and Geophysics (NRIAG). I received my B.Sc. and the M.Sc. in Physics from Zagazig University, Egypt in 1985 and 1992 respectively.  I received  my Dr Eng. from Hokkaido University, Japan, Division of Electronics and Information Engineering in 1998. I am a Professor at Space Research Laboratory at NRIAG, Egypt since June, 2012.  I published more than 60 papers in reputed journals and international conferences. I am a member of some International Scientific societies and Authorities such as – the Optical Society of Japan from 1996 to 2001, Member of the International Laser Ranging Service (ILRS) since 2000, Member of the Committee of Space Research (COSPAR) since 2014, Member of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) since 2015, Member of the ILRS Space Debris Study Group (SDSG) since 2015. I teaches some courses about “satellites” and “satellites technologies” to the BSc. and the Dr. Students at faculty of Science, Helwan, University, Egypt. I am also teaching some other courses at NRIAG. I had been published more than 60 papers in reputed journals and international conferences.
