Associate Professor of Physics at Doha University for Science and Technology, Doha, Qatar

Dr. Mahmoud Abdel-Hafiez is an Associate Professor with a habilitation degree of Physics at Doha University for Science and Technology, Doha, Qatar.

He has a highly interdisciplinary background combined with extensive international experiences throughout his academic career.
Prior to the current affiliations, he has held appointments at different Universities in USA, Sweden, Belgium, China and Germany.

He pursued his doctoral studies at Dresden University of Technology, Germany. He received a three-year German Science Foundation Young Investigator Award in 2015.
During his work at Center for High Pressure Science and Technology Advanced Research in Shanghai, he was a recipient of the Outstanding Young Scientist award from the Overseas Chinese Physicists Association in 2018.
He has been a Visiting Professor at Moscow State University. Professor Abdel-Hafiez’s research interests seek to reveal fundamental problems in quantum (magnetic) materials and tackles long-standing questions, such as how quantum fluctuations, topology and disorder can be demonstrated to create states of matter with novel and functional properties.
He has published 93 papers in these areas in high impact scientific journals. He has already supervised 11 Masters and four PhD-students.
He has extensive academic leadership skills (e.g. as German Co-president of the Arab-German young academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA): www.agya.info) with a great interest in science communication and public outreach.
