After completing his BSc in Civil Engineering (2015), Amr graduated with a master’s degree (MSc) from the University of Toulouse (2017) in Durability Engineering – Research and Innovation for materials and structures. He went and obtained his PhD (2022) from the University of Toulouse where he specialized in characterisation and durability problems for cement-based materials exposed to sewer environments.

Amr joined the University of Sheffield in February 2022 as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Department of Materials Science & Engineering. He is currently involved in the Interdisciplinary Circular Economy Centre for Mineral-based Construction Materials (ICEC-MCM) and he works on developing novel and sustainable construction materials to promote the Circular Economy.
