Brief introduction

I am a plasma physicist obtained a BSc in Physics from Mansoura University, Egypt in 2015, and MSc in plasma and nuclear fusion from Ghent University, Belgium in 2018. Free-CO2 energy sources, such as geothermal energy and nuclear fusion, is the main motivation of my research. My research in GEG group focuses on understanding the fundamentals of the pulsed plasma technology for deep geothermal drilling (5-10 km). We employee the knowledge of plasma to investigate the rock breaking process by nanosecond pulses with maximum voltage 300-500 kV based on the arcing concept.

Research Interests

  • Microscale plasma modeling.
  • Pulsed plasma drilling.
  • Solid dielectric breakdown.
  • Fusion Plasma (in MSc) Impurity Neoclassical transport in Stellarator with EUTERPE code.
