I am currently a Lecturer in Robotics and Control Engineering at Cardiff Metropolitan University.

Short Bio

Ahmed holds a BSc degree in Industrial Electronics and Control Engineering from Faculty of Electronic Engineering, Menoufia University where he then worked as a teaching assistant. He got his MSc and PhD degrees in Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering from Egypt-Japan University of Science and Technology in 2013 and 2016 respectively in the field of Aerial Manipulators. While pursuing his PhD thesis, in 2015, he joined Namerikawa Laboratory at Keio University as a PhD student. In November 2016, Ahmed was a lecturer in automation and robotics and a researcher in multi-drone formation control at the Faculty of Electronic Engineering, Menoufia University. Meanwhile, he joined the French University in Egypt and Zewail City for Science and Technology as an adjunct lecturer. In December 2017, he had postdoctoral researcher position at Ecole Centrale de Nantes where he worked on the project Valet to design a motion control algorithm for car-like vehicles platoon navigating in urban environments.

Research Interests

My research interests, based on an interdisciplinary approach, span the areas of Control Theory, Mechatronics, Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI). I have a specific interest in the design, analysis and motion control of robotic systems including:

  • Robust, optimal, predictive, cooperative and distributed control;
  • Homogeneous/Heterogeneous Cooperative Robots;
  • Subterranean Robots;
  • AI-based motion control algorithms.
