Aliaa is a Technology blogger at TechBlick with a passion for creating connections between innovative sustainable science, emerging technologies, and business. Aliaa finds her interest in knowledge communication; she is dedicated to communicating science and technological breakthroughs.
Aliaa has a bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Ain shams University (Egypt) and a master’s degree in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology from Universität Siegen (Germany). Currently, she is a Marie Curie Ph.D. fellow at Technische Universität München (Germany) as well as R&D Scientist at AIMPLAS (Spain) . Aliaa has strong interdisciplinary research experience ranging from green chemistry, nano-optoelectronics, device physics, and surface engineering. During her B.Sc., she worked at the American University in Cairo on the fabrication of Nanostructured photocatalysts for carbon dioxide reduction and water splitting. At Universität Siegen, she worked on developing industrial production methods and coating techniques for copper thin superconducting films for superconducting RF cavities. Aliaa did her master’s thesis at Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research on studying the ultrafast charge carrier dynamics at the interface of 2D materials using ultrafast time-resolved THz laser spectroscopy. Afterward, she worked at ICN2 on designing THz devices using laser photolithography. Currently, Aliaa’s research focuses on printed flexible optoelectronic devices (e.g., light-emitting devices and organic photovoltaics) based on 2D materials.
