Dr. Ahmed Samy

He studied Physics and Electronics and graduated from Ain Shams University. He joined the physics department and laser technology unit at the National Research Center as a research assistant and later joined the British University inEgypt as a teaching assistant to develop gold nanoparticle-based drugs for cancer therapy.

In 2017 he received his PhD in nanoscience and nanotechnology from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Ljubljana and Jozef Stefan Postgraduate International School. Through his PhD, he got training in different prestigious laboratories and universities all over Europe besides participating in international conferences and collaborating with industry. Dr Kreta was appointed to a postdoctoral fellow position at the University of Nova Gorica where he pursued advanced research in the field of Nanotechnology and worked on developing and characterizing new materials for optoelectronic and fuel cell applications. Jointly, he worked as an assistant professor of Physics. Then, he moved back to work with the Slovenian National Institute of Chemistry to conduct research on immune sensors including COVID19 sensors.

Afterwards, He joined AUC to work as a research fellow in the field of Nanophotonic, Biosensors and the applications of femtosecond laser.

Dr Ahmed Kreta has over 15 years of experience working in academia and research in the field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. Working in different higher education organizations added to Dr Kreta a spectrum of experiences in both British and European higher education systems and curriculums. Dr Kreta participated in a myriad of multilateral European research projects with different countries (Including Italy, Austria, Belgium, Hungary and Slovenia), and lead some of them. Some of the purposes of the project were to enhance the collaboration between science and industry all over Europe.
