Brief Biography

Mohamed Swillam received his PhD from McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada in 2008. After graduation, he worked as a post doctoral fellow in the same group. In October 2009, he joined the Department of Physics and the Institute of Optical Sciences at the University of Toronto where he works as a research fellow. In September 2011, he was appointed as an assistant professor at the Department of Physics, The American university in Cairo (AUC). He is now an associate professor at the Department of Physics at AUC. His research interests mainly focus on nanophysics with emphasis on design optimization and fabrication of active and passive nanophotonic and plasmonic devices and systems, silicon photonics, optical interconnects, integrated on-chip optical systems, lab on-chip, nano-antenna, metamaterials, and solar cells. The main applications include biomedical systems, energy harvesting, and telecommunications. He authored more than 250 technical papers in highly ranked journals and conferences. He also hold five patents, a book, and book chapter in these areas.
