Mostafa Yossef is a postdoctoral researcher focused on sustainable energy-efficient structures. His research areas include structural Mechanics, Finite Element Modelling, and Building Integrated Photovoltaics and thermoelectric concrete. He has more than 15 years of experience in teaching since graduation.
My research is focused on energy-efficient structures, within that context, I tries to fit in my previous experience of Finite Element Modelling, Structural Mechanics, and Solar cell integration. I am also working on the behavior of FRP-concrete structures starting from bond interaction until overall structural behavior.
Dr. Yossef started his undergraduate degree at Arab Academy for Science and Technology (Cairo, Egypt) with a structural steel design graduation project. Followed by a Master's degree at Ain Shams University (Cairo, Egypt) in the behavior of corrugated sheets subjected to lateral loads. By the end of 2013, the global focus on energy and multidisciplinary research encouraged him to do his Ph.D. in the behavior of concrete sandwich panels with integrated solar cells at Iowa State University. After his Ph.D., he had the chance to go back to Egypt and teach structural mechanics to undergraduate students. To follow his passion for multidisciplinary research, He had the privilege of doing research at Aalto in the areas of sustainable, energy-efficient structures.
I started my Journey as undergraduate at Arab Academy for Science and Technology (Cairo, Egypt) with steel design graduation project. Continuing my passion for steel structures, I did my Master's degree in the same field but in Ain Shams University (Cairo, Egypt). By the end of 2013, the global focus on energy encourage me to study the behavior of sandwich panels with integrated solar cells as my PhD at Iowa State University. After graduation in Aug. 2017, I went back to Egypt to teach and perform research in Structural Mechanics.
