About Mohamed


A renewable energy research scientist who was born in the 8th of December 1986 and raised at Cairo, Egypt. Got the B.Sc. in electrical engineering in 2008 from the faculty of Engineering, Helwan University, Egypt. Obtained the M.Sc. Degree in renewable energy in 2014 from University of Oldenburg, Germany.

Directly after finishing my B.Sc. studies I Joined ABB from 2008 to 2011 as a technical trainer and support engineer for power electronics and drives. On January 2011, I joined the American University in Cairo (AUC), School of Science and Engineering as the first official Science Communicator in Egypt. My message was to simplify different fields of science, in addition to creating a public engagement strategy with scientists and engineers. Aiming to erase scientific illiteracy from the Egyptian society, through outreaching and creating educational revolutionary activities which will lead to establishing the foundations of decision maker society.

Since June 2014, I am a renewable energy research scientist at KIT, working on the development of new ideas in the field of renewables especially solar, wind energy and energy storage solutions.

I am married and currently lining with our wonderful family at Germany, my wife and son (almost 2 years old) are the best part of my life (thanks ALLAH).

I'm thinking about teaching kids how to make an Energy Audit for schools and homes, any ideas or related TED talks?
Thanks a lotttt this really an amazing idea, I guess we have a grant which we can get a thermal camera and do the same here the way you said on air conditioned cool air. also we can state this in our energy report beside the amount of use in electrical energy Really nice idea and the elections is going in a good way here I hope =)
