He has done his B.Sc. in Agricultural Science in 1976, M.Sc. in Soil Science in 1982 from from Cairo University. The M. SC. Thesis entitled “ Status of some micronutrients “Boron” in the soils of Egypt.He has done Ph. D. in Soil Science from Cairo University in the year 1988. The Ph. D. thesis entitled “ Status of potassium in the soils of Egypt”. He is the Reviewer in the Journal of Hazardous Materials (ELSEVIER Publisher) and the Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology, Islamic Republic of Iran. He has more than 25 publications in many Journals. He also attended more than 11 Conferences and meetings. He has membership in Egyptian Soil Science Society, Since 1984 and African Soil Science Society, since 1988.
His research activities deal with application of nanotechnology in remediation of heavy metals polluted soil. Various nano-particles; nano scale zero valent iron “nZVI”, nZVI-bentonite, nano alginate and nano carbon; are used as a potential sorbents to eliminate heavy metals from polluted soil. These nanoparticles are prepared in lab either using bottom-up or top-down methods, then characterized using transmission electron microscope (TEM). Also, these nano particles could be potentially used to decontaminate heavy metals polluted water.
