Dr. Mohamed Afifi has a bachelor’s degree in 2008 and a master’s degree in 2012 in Mechanical Production Engineering from Benha University, Faculty of Engineering Shoubra, Egypt. Then he obtained his Ph.D. from the Beijing Institute of Technology, Beijing, China, in 2019 in the materials processing research group, then a research fellow at Brunel University in the UK until July 2022.
Mohamed has practical expertise in the thermomechanical treatment of nonferrous alloys using heat treatment and deformation through working with Constellium SE; in addition, he has practical experience in Microstructural Characterization using OM, SEM (Leo, Supra and FIB-SEM), XRD and TEM (JEOL) operations. His current research is focused on developing lightweight materials with high mechanical performance to be applied in different industrial applications.
