My research focuses on the designing, manufacturing, and processing of advanced high-strength steels. Moreover, understanding the processing-microstructure-property relationship for these steels.

I received my DSc degree in Materials Engineering from the University of Oulu, Finland, in 2020. During my doctoral studies (2016-2020), I was working on the designing and development of low-alloyed ultrahigh-strength steels from steel scrap using induction melting, electroslag remelting, thermomechanical controlled processing. Moreover, studying the effect of the manufacturing and processing on the final microstructure i.e., phases fraction, precipitates characteristics, and non-metallic inclusions characteristics. In addition, the evaluation of their effect on the final mechanical properties.

Currently, my research focuses on the effect of thermomechanical processing and novel heat treatment on the microstructure and hydrogen embrittlement resistance of advanced high-strength steels. Furthermore, studying the effect of novel heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of additive-manufactured ultrahigh-strength steels.
