Alexandria, Egypt

I am an oceanographer, marine
geologist and ecologist since 1984. I have a massive experience (28/8/1994-
until date) in the field of climate changes, monitoring of marine pollution;
coastal and land use, including map surveys tools on the coast (coastal
topography), Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) of water bodies. I have  gained skills in developing and managing both
managerial and technical tasks, as  demonstrated through my work experience as a
Director of Scientific Documentation and Media Unit, Head of Marine Geology Lab
and Director of National Institute of Oceanography and Fisheries, Alexandria,
Egypt, as well as across several national and international projects and
consultancies in the field of marine environment, climate change, Integrated
Coastal Zone Management (ICZM), Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) and  management of fisheries and aquaculture. I
have also acquired a solid reputation as expert, consultant and evaluator, in
the last 10 years at both national and international levels, particularly in
the field of water resources monitoring and planning, biodiversity and ICZM in
Mediterranean countries (particularly in North Africa countries), by developing
guidelines for sustainable use and innovation methodology for management of
wild resources, focusing on ecological cycles of the aquatic resources in the
Mediterranean region and developing an Integrated Coastal Zone Management
strategy of Nile Delta, Egypt, as well as capacity building and education
guidelines for Egyptian scientists, and public sector.
