Dr. Ahmed Soltan
Ahmed Soltan received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees from the University of Cairo, Cairo, Egypt, in 2004 and 2008, respectively. He received the Ph.D. degree in electronics and communication from Cairo University in 2014. He received the 2014–2016 best thesis award from Cairo for his Ph.D. thesis. He worked on circuit and system design and modelling in the fractional order domain during his Ph.D. research. He is currently a Research Associate and EDA/CAD Specialist with the School of Engineering, Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K. He was a Teacher Assistant with the faculty of Engineering, Fayoum University, Fayoum, Egypt, for nine years and was an R&D Firmware Engineer for eight years. He also was an R&D Manager for an LED company at Qatar for one year and half.
His current research interests include smart energy harvesting systems and power management for biomedical implantable devices and lab-on-chip systems. He is also interested in the thermal impact of the implantable devices on the human tissues, embedded system design for lab-on-chip system, the investigation of fractional circuits and systems, specifically in fractional order analog filters for signal processing, and fractional order modelling for biomedical applications. Dr. Soltan’s research aims to establish a new healthcare monitoring system and diagnosis on the fly by development of autonomous devices. Dr. Soltan published more than 50 papers in a prestige journals.
