Staff Profile Overview

​Ahmed graduated from the Department of Industrial Electronics and Control Engineering, Faculty of Electronic Engineering, Menoufia University in 2009. Then, he worked as a teaching assistant until 2011 in that department. He received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering from Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology in 2013 and 2016, respectively. While pursuing his Ph.D. thesis, in 2015, I joined Namerikawa Laboratory at Keio University as a Ph.D. student. After that, Ahmed was recruited as a lecturer of automation and robotics at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering. Meanwhile, he joined the French University in Egypt and Zewail City for Science and Technology as an adjunct lecturer. In 2018, Ahmed worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. From 2021, he is a lecturer at Cardiff School of Technologies, Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK.
