|2018 – Present||Scientific assistance at ETH-Zurich.|
|2015 – Present||Demonstrator at Physics Dept., Faculty of Science, Mansoura University , Egypt (Tenure – hold now).|
|26 Feb – 03 Mar 2018:||Studying landau damping using VLASOV code: It was a hand one project to study the competition between Landau damping and collision. It holds and the results had been presented at IRFM, CEA, France|
|19 Feb – 23 Feb 2018||Analysing COMPASS data for the heat flux decay length: The task was analyzing diverter probes data for heat flux profile construction. A python routine had been introduced for fitting which significantly faster than the old Matlab one. The work still in progress for mapping the profile to the midplane to rich the data libraries for scaling the decay length for ITER in L-mode. Done remotely from IRFM, CEA, France.|
|03 Dec – 16 Dec 2017:||Shoulder formation vs Collisionality campaign@COMPASS: My task was calculating the divertor collisionality profile using the divertor probes array. I had created a python routine for data acquisition, analysis and construct the collisionality profile. It had held at COMPASS Tokamak, IPP, Prague, Czech Republic.|
