Amgad Rezk


Amgad Rezk is a Senior Lecturer of Chemical Engineering at RMIT University, prior to which he held the positions of Lecturer (2019 – 2020) and RMIT’s Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship (2015 - 2018). He is also the recipient of the Winston Churchill Fellowship and the Finalist of the Victoria’s Young Achiever Award. He received many awards for his excellence in both research and teaching including the Executive Dean’s Research Excellence Award and RMIT Early Career Research Award in 2022 & 2019 and RMIT’s Teaching Award in the Early Career Category in 2016. His current research interests involve the use of the high frequency acoustics to manipulate fluids and solids on the micro-to-nanoscale for a host of applications including nanomaterial synthesis, diagnostics, crystallisation, and energy applications.

Projects




Nanomaterials synthesis using High frequency acoustics


The use of MHz acoustics to synthesise new nanomaterials and nanocomposites




2D Nanomaterials modulation using High frequency Acoustic Excitation


The use of surface acoustic waves to modulate the electronic, physical and chemical properties of 2D nanomaterials, MXenes and Metal Organic Frameworks (MOFs)




Acoustofluidic Nebulisation


Through high surface accelerations and nano earthquake-like vibrations, we exploit the use of these vibrations to break droplets into fine mist for drug delivery




Microdroplet Jetting


With short pulsating sound waves, we show the precise breakup of drops and liquids into small (<100 micrometer diameter) droplets, for applications such as bio printing, serial dilution, and single cell dispensing
