Ahmed is an experienced metallurgist and materials engineer who is currently developing new additively manufactured high entropy alloys that will serve in many fields like aerospace, energy or even luxury industry.
He has previously worked as an R&D engineer for one of the top international mechanical engineering firms and participated in different engineering projects for clients from Europe and the Middle East.
In his PhD research project, Ahmed will focus on the use of additive manufacturing and modelling to develop new high entropy alloys by both focusing on the selection of the chemical composition space and the microstructure design.
In 2020, he was awarded a scholarship from the European union to peruse a double degree in metallurgy in France. He was also one of the few students that were accepted for the advanced master of Ecole Mines ParisTech from where he holds a master in mechanical engineering.
Currently, he is doing his research in Germany (Institut für Werkstofftechnik Metallische Werkstoffe – Kassel) and Australia (Centre for Additive Manufacturing – Melbourne).
