Mohamed Awadein took up experimental physics as a young undergraduate at Mansoura University in Egypt where he received his BSc in 2008, after that, he completed a radiation physics diploma from the University of Ain-Shams in Cairo, in 2011. He then moved on to the University of Vienna, Austria where he completed his MSc in nuclear physics in 2017, meanwhile, he worked for Stefan Meyer Institute for subatomic physics in collaboration with the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN. He took over designing, and constructing a subdetector for ALICE Detector Upgrade called V0+ Detector of the Fast Interaction Trigger (FIT), in addition to performing the data analysis, he also carried out the R&D work, focusing on optimization of scintillator material, the choice of photosensors and the readout electronics. Moreover, he contributed to the experimental setup and data acquisition during beam times at CERN in Geneva for two months.
Since 1st July 2019, Mohamed started his new career at Keysight Labs Linz on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy of bio-organic solar cells and Li batteries at a frequency range of 1 micro-Hz to 1 giga-Hz and trying to provide a very accurate calibration for this measurement. He is an Early Stage Researcher at Keysight Technologies Austria GmbH in the frame of BORGES, and a PhD student at the Department of Experimental Physics at Johannes Kepler University Linz.
