I am a research associate in the Computing Department of Imperial College London. Previously, I worked as a research associate in the Robotics Engineering research group at the Electrical Engineering & Electronics department of the University of Manchester. Also, I worked as a research associate at the Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) at the University of Sheffield, UK. I was awarded my PhD degree at the University of Liverpool, UK. I worked as a research assistant at the A*STAR Institute of Singapore. Also, I worked as a senior communication embedded system engineer at the R&D department of El Sewedy Electrometer, Egypt with 5 years of research experience and high experience in embedded software design for communication systems.

  • Especially skilled at the designing and implementation of communication systems including the design and fabrication of antennas, building up transceiver system prototypes using software-defined radio (SDR) kits, and testing the overall system in a real field environment using VNA, Oscilloscopes and Spectrum Analyzers. 
  • Proven ability in antenna design and conducting electromagnetic field simulations using numerical software packages such as ANSYS HFSS, CST and COMSOL.
  • Proven ability to deal with harsh noise conditions using different modulations techniques and its simulation using MATLAB software.
  • Expertise in many programming languages such as C, Python and Assembly.
  • High experience in the structure of different microcontrollers and microprocessors.
  • Strong Mathematical and Physical backgrounds.
  • Good expertise in prototype enclosure design and 3D printing using SolidWorks software package.


Imperial College London, UK                           2019 to present

Position: Research Associate

  • Development of CogniSense technology, which is a new RF non-intrusive machine monitoring technology, which is able to capture different machine parameters such as its rotation speed using the electromagnetic field as a sensor. 
  • Leveraging the technology readiness level (TRL) to the deployment level at the customer premises to test real case scenarios.
  • Approaching different customers from different industries to develop CogniSense tech. capabilities that match the customer requirements.
  • Designing, implementation and testing of CogniSense RF sensor prototype.
  • Leading the RF shadowing theme in the AESE group in the Computing Department of Imperial College under the supervision of Prof. Julie McCann. The theme studies the use of the electromagnetic field as a sensor for different applications such as human health monitoring, agriculture and machine monitoring.
