Ahmed Abdelhady


Research Line



IIT Central Research Labs Genova


 Ahmed L. Abdelhady holds a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from The University of Manchester, United Kingdom (2011), under the supervision of Prof. Paul O’Brien. After he completed his Ph.D., he became a lecturer of inorganic chemistry at Mansoura University, Egypt. In 2013, he joined Prof. Osman Bakr’s Functional Nanomaterials Lab at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia. In 2016, he joined Prof. Liberato Manna group at the Italian Institute of Technology (IIT), as a postdoctoral-fellow then as a researcher in 2017. He has co-authored more than 30 peer-reviewed journal papers and co-invented 2 patents.

 As a researcher, he's leading a researchgroup focusing on all-inorganic and hybrid perovskite single crystals and thin films for optoelectronic applications.
