About me:

Hello, my name is Mohamed Ghobara and I come from Egypt. I finished my Bachelor and Master degree at Tanta University, specializing in an interesting and extraordinary class of photosynthetic microorganisms called diatoms known for their siliceous frustules surrounding their living protoplasts. I believe in the art of diatoms and aim to make use of their fascinating structural and optical properies in optoelectronic devices. Currently, I am happily doing my PhD in AG-Reissig, investigating how the frustule's optical properties can optimize the performance of optoelectronic devices, with the focus on differential photodetectors.
