Dr. Ethar A. Abdel Salam

Assistant Professor

Dr Ethar Ahmed is an assistant professor in the School of Engineering and applied sciences at Nile University. She obtained her PhD in applied mathematics from Cairo University in 2020 where she studied thermo-Piezo Elasticity of Continuous Media with Microstructure, within the Frame of Extended Thermodynamics. Prior to her PhD, she obtained her BSc. in special Mathematics from the faculty of science, Al-Azhar University and her MSc in applied mathematics from the faculty of Science at Zagazig University. Dr Ethar research interests center around continuum mechanics and thermoelasticity. She has more than 17 peer reviewed research articles published in top-tier journals and she has been serving as a reviewer in the top journals of the field. During the summer of 2023, she was a visiting researcher in the Electrical Engineering Dept. at Stanford University where she worked on developing a theoretical model for transparent piezoelectric transducers for neuron stimulation applications. She has participated in several scientific conferences including the 8th International Scientific Conference (Environment, Development and Bioinformatic), the 8th International Conference on Mathematics and Information Sciences and the International Mathematics Day- Mathematics for Development. Dr Ethar teaches several core undergraduate courses at Nile University and has been an active member in many student research activities. She served as a jury member in the Egyptian Junior Researcher Competition and she mentors and guides the next generation of researchers and engineers develop creative projects and publish their work in conferences and scientific journals. She is also a member of the Egyptian Mathematical Society and the Egyptian Women in Mathematics society.
