Mohamed Elsayed - Ph.D. Student


Mohamed joined the Wheeler lab September 2018 as a PhD in Biomedical Engineering student. He finished his Bachelor of Applied Science in Electrical Engineering (Bioengineering Minor) in 2011 followed by a Masters of Engineering in Electrical Engineering (specialization in Biomedical Engineering) in 2012, both from the University of Toronto and a Masters of Science degree in Nanotechnology from the American University in Cairo in 2018.

His MEng project (2011 to 2012) was with the Advanced Micro and Nanosystems Lab at the University of Toronto, where he worked on real-time high speed FPGA-based image processing for microfluidics applications.

He went to his home country, Egypt in 2012 to 2018. He worked as a research assistant in the Assiut Microfluidics Lab (2012 to 2014) on a variety of projects involving channel microfluidics and digital (EWOD) microfluidics with applications in stem cell research and sperm cells. From 2015 to 2018, he worked as a research assistant with both the Center of Nanoelectronics and Devices and the Nanophotonics Research Lab affiliated with Zewail City of Science and Technology and the American University in Cairo, where he also worked towards his Masters degree in Nanotechnology. The projects involved on-chip optical and plasmonic sensors.

In his free time, Mohamed loves to travel. The picture here was taken in Rome, Italy.
