Hassan El-Dessouky

Visiting Research Fellow

0113 343 8083

BSc (Egypt) MSc (Egypt) PhD (Egypt)

Biography

Dr El-Dessouky is an associate professot in Physics at Mansoura University in Egypt. Now, he is a Research Fellow at CTT (Centre for Technical Textiles) in the University of Leeds. He holds three degrees (BSc, MSc and PhD) in Physics and is a referee in various journals; such as Journal of Applied Polymer Science, The Journal of the Textiles Institute, Optics & Laser Technology, and Polymer Engineering & Science.

Research Interests

He is interested in studying the optical and structural properties of polymeric and fibrous materials. Regarding textile fibres, he is studying the effect of spinning conditions on the melt-spun fibres and he is looking to spin new composite and functional fibres of desirable properties. Now he is working different aspects of nanotechnology and composites based fibres. He always performs his research using the interferometric techniques in between CTT (Prof. Car Lawrence) and IRC polymer (Prof. Ian Ward). A selection of publications from the past three years is listed below.
