Tamer Elkholy
Assistant Professor - Zewail City for Science and Technology
Tamer is passionate about physics, and specifically cosmology and how our Universe came to be the way it is today. Tamer graduated from Rutgers University, majoring in physics, and went on to complete his doctoral degree in physics as well at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His doctoral thesis used data collected from the orbiting Chandra X-ray telescope to study galaxy clusters, and learn about how their chemical composition evolved with cosmic time. He then went on a short adventure outside of academia and into the corporate world of software, where he worked for Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Software division for a few years, learning about large enterprise-scale cloud-deployed software solutions. Yet, Tamer has returned again to the world of physics, teaching at the Zewail City for Science and Technology, since January of 2017.
