Soft Electronics group, Laboratory of Organic Electronics (LOE)


Mohammed has obtained his bachelor's in Systems and Biomedical Engineering from Cairo University, and his masters in Micro- and Nano-Scale Engineering jointly from INSA de Lyon, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, and Université de Lyon 1 in France. Then he pursued his PhD in George Malliaras's lab at the department of bioelectronics, Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne, France.

His PhD focused on micro- and nano- patterning of conducting polymers for biomedical application such as soft tissues interfacing, and biosensing. Since then Mohammed has worked on several projects as a research engineer, including cochlear implants, until he joined the Soft Electronics group, lead by associate professor Klas Tybrandt at Linköping University in 2020, as a postdoctoral researcher.

Mohammed's current focus is on electroactive soft neural implants. His current projects include stretchable nerve cuff electrodes, and transversal intraneural probes for sensing and stimulation to restore motor functions in animals. He is particularly interested in conceptualizing and creating novel medical devices such as olfactory implants in humans. His work includes designing, fabrication, and characterization of neural devices as well as actively participating in clinical trials.
