Mohamed Khedr studied Chemistry in Tanta University (Egypt) and worked in the field of generic pharmaceuticals’ formulation and quality control. In 2017, he received his Master’s degree at the University of Siegen (Germany); majoring in Analytical Chemistry with a focus on applications of Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) in investigating trace analytes (down to the ranges of ng/kg) within a diversity of matrices, such as biological samples, beverages, foodstuff and food contact materials. His current research is concerned with developing sensitive methods for determining volatile and semi-volatile organic compounds involved in personal exposure to particulate matter in ambient air,. In order to validate the measurements recorded by the various instruments involved in the SmartAQnet project; and to perform source apportionment for detectable species. The SmartAQnet project aims at characterizing air quality in the urban part of Augsburg and is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Traffic and Digital Infrastructure - Bundesministerium für Verkehr und digitale Infrastruktur (BMVI).


Thesis: Analysis and source apportionment of the organic fraction involved in personal exposure to ambient particulate matter; this project is part of the SmartAQnet project funded by the federal ministry of transport and digital infra structure (BMVI).
