Mohamed is currently the Postdoc Associate Research at the Department of Chemistry at the University of Surrey. Prior to starting his research work at Guilford, briefly, he joined the Martin Luther University, Halle-Wittenberg (Halle (Saale), Germany), as a PhD student in October 2005. Since 2006, Mohamed continued his PhD at the Department of Chemistry and CICECO of the University of Aveiro (Aveiro, Portugal). He also has a D.E.A (Diplome d’Etudes Approfondie and Master’s Degree) in materials science from the National Institute of Applied Sciences of Lyon (INSA de Lyon- France), at Materials Science and Physical Metallurgy Laboratory (GEMPPM) and he is a graduate in Chemical Engineering from the Sciences and Technology University of Oran (USTO-Oran, Algeria). In 2011, he started a post-doc at the University of Aveiro. Mohamed’s research activity was focused on developing synthesis for nanomaterials and nanoparticles using developed non-aqueous sol-gel routes for the synthesis of metal and metal oxide nanoparticles and studies their magnetic properties. Then, he joined University of Birmingham (UK) in 2015.
He developed his research work and engineering skills through several internships and academic projects in Europe (France, Germany, Portugal, Norway, and the UK) where he has gained valuable experience from different school and employment. During Mohamed’s research works, he developed a new process to produce nanoparticles and nanomaterials for many applications including catalysis, photocatalytic, electrochemical, magnetism, gas sensing, optical, electric.
