Personal profile

Personal profile

Dr. Sherif Araby Gouda has a wide range of expertise spanning mechanical engineering, manufacturing and polymer processing since 2006. He started his research on investigating and optimising nontraditional machining process parameters including electrochemical and electrodischarge machining processes using design of experiment (DoE) approach. Since 2011, he has substantially contributed in the development of functional polymer nanocomposites, including the fabrication and characterization of graphene platelets, and their polymer nanocomposites as well as the investigations of the structure-property of these composites. He developed a three-phase elastomer/graphene/carbon nanotube nanocomposite using an industry attractive route. This nanocomposite has substantial mechanical performance combined with high thermal and electrical conductivity. He also developed elastomer composites with high flame retardancy and durability using graphene platelets. Dr. Sherif worked on other polymers, specifically, epoxy to improve their high brittleness and low fatigue resistance limitations.  He has in-depth knowledge in investigating structure-property relations for the developed polymer/graphene composites. Utilizing his expertise in engineering materials and advanced manufacturing processes, Dr. Sherif has been engaging with industry to investigate and address various problems and to develop new products. His research experience and achievments are as follows:

 1-15 years’ experience in experimental-based research in mechanical engineering (nanomaterials synthesis nanocomposites processing, smart materials for strain sensing)

 2- Google scholar h index: 21, Scopus h index: 20

 3- Published ~ 55 publications including 2 book chapter, 46 high impact journals and 5 international conferences

 4- Research award from Benha University in 2016

 5- Comprehensive experience in material characterizations, destructive and non-destructive tests

 6- Co-chair for International conference “the 10th International Conference on Structural Integrity and Failure (SIF-2016)” 

 7-  Guest Editor for special issue published by Coatings (Impact factor 2.33)

 8- Documenting data, writing reports and delivering technical presentations

 9- Supervision for postgraduate studies including PhD and Master by research

 10-Reviewer for several international journals such as Nanotechnology, Materials & Design, Journal of Materials Processing Technology, ACS Nano, and RSC advances.
