I’m Mohamed. I do physics all the time.
I’m a Ph.D. physics graduate student at the University of Cincinnati. Egyptian by birth and a proud Muslim. Science geek and I hate pseudoscience and snakes. I’m currently taking classes at the UC physics department and looking forward to starting my research by the end of this academic year. I got my MS degree at the University of Minnesota, I was searching for magnetic monopole, one of the most elusive particles in our history, which we look for since the dawn of time I love what I’ve done so far, and although that we don’t know much about why we don’t have this elusive particle detected yet. I worked at the NOvA experiment at Fermilab, which is one of the best places in the world. Do you know that you can visit it easily?
I graduated from Zewail University in Egypt then moved to the US for graduate school working on the NOvA experiment at Fermilab. I worked with my Supervisor and the great man Dr. Alec Habig who taught me a lot of things about physics and even world history. Furthermore, I’m also learning machine learning and how we could apply it to our field, which would enhance our ability to understand our data and get answers for our big questions in mind.
I’m a big fan of online learning, and I took many courses on MOOC platforms like Coursera, EDX, and Udacity. Mainly in my areas of interest, which are Data analysis, computer science, and Physics but nerveless, I took many courses in other areas to expand my knowledge. I mainly like Coursera as I consider it the best MOOC platform available. I’m glad to surf as a volunteer beta tester for their new courses as I was selected among others to give back some of what we had learned. You can read more about that on the MOOCs page.
From time to time, I will post my experience, advice, and some programming hints from my online courses. I will share all this information and put it on this page. Learn, so keep visiting it for hopefully useful information. Also, you can take a look into my physics computational GitHub repository, where I publish my computational physics tools.
When I’m not doing physics or machine learning, I may be reading or playing games like a supreme ruler. I’m addicted to this game and consider it one of the most important inventions in the history of computer games. I usually like to struggle with balancing the economy, which this game offers me. I’m not very active on social media except for Goodreads (would you like to show me your title list?). Once ago, I was very enthusiastic with a bunch of other guys. We eliminated a 30 years dictatorship using social media power, but we lost the game in the end.
