Brief Biography

Mohamed Serry is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at The American University in Cairo (AUC), and Leader of the Microfabrication and Advanced Sensor Technologies Research Group at Youssef Jameel Science and Technology Research Center (YJSTRC). He conducts research on micro and nano-fabrication and engineering and advanced materials for sensor applications.

Serry holds a Ph.D. in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering (University of Toronto), an M.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering (University of Alberta), and a B.Sc. in Mechanical Design and Production Engineering (Ain Shams University), as well a string of research grants, honors, and awards. In addition to his academic credentials, he has been published in forty-eight peer-reviewed journals and conferences, one book chapter, and has four granted and pending United States patents.

Serry has developed an established track record for his research in advanced nanostructures for sensor applications, MEMS microfabrication technology, graphene synthesis and integration within microsystems, the fundamental study of transport phenomena in graphene/semiconductor junctions for sensor applications, the application of graphene composites for structural and energy conversion applications, the modeling of interface phenomena in graphene composite structures, the design and fabrication of physical sensors (MEMS gyroscope/ accelerometers) and biochemical sensors, the use of novel substrates to improve the effectiveness of chemical, gas, bio, mechanical, and physical sensors, and the development of micro-robotic structures for advanced cancer detection and biological cell manipulation.
