Asmaa has begun her academic career in 2012 as a teaching assistant at the American University in Cairo and lasted until 2018. During this period, she was assisting in “classical mechanics, sound, and heat”, and “electricity and magnetism” for freshman engineering students in addition to assisting in solid-state physics for junior physics major students. She joined the Physics graduate program at the American University in Cairo in 2014 and earned a Master’s degree in Materials Physics in June 2018. She was honored twice for her outstanding academic achievement in the graduate program from the school of sciences and engineering at the American University in Cairo and awarded a “Merit” fellowship for maintaining a GPA of 3.87/4.
Her research work was first concerned with studying the dynamics of some biological systems using GROMACS and NAMD simulations, then shifted to fabricating and studying the structural, optical, electrical, and ferroelectric properties of some narrow gap semiconducting alloys as potential materials for ferroelectric capacitors.
Asmaa El-Khodary has been appointed as an Assistant Lecturer at the British University in Egypt in September 2018.
