Dr Mokhles K Azer

Editor

Professor of Mineralogy and Petrology
Department of Geological Sciences
National Research Centre
Cairo, Egypt

Biography

Dr. Mokhles K. Azer was born in Assiut, Egypt in 1972. He graduated his B.Sc. in science from Assiut University in 1994, Egypt. He worked as geologist in Assiut University and trained in the projects of Natural Resources. He obtained a Fellowship Grant from Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, Egypt and obtained his M.Sc. from Cairo University in 2000.  He obtained his PhD from Cairo University in the Neoproterozoic volcanics of Egypt, in 2004. He did his postdoctoral studies at the National Research Centre Egypt with cooperation with many scientists from different countries (USA, Japan, Sweden, Finland, Canada and Australia). He worked as assistant professor in the field of Mineralogy and Petrology of igneous and metamorphic rocks since 2009 until now.
Dr. Mokhles K. Azer worked in many intentional and local projects as principal investigator, co-principal investigator and member. The projects were concerning the evaluation of some rocks and ores to be used in constructions and industry. He used several of tools to investigate the origin and evolution of the Neoproterozoic rocks in the Arabian-Nubian Shield and their economic significance. He participated in many internal projects in the National Research Centre which concerning the evaluation of some rocks and ores to be used in constructions and industry. He obtained many grants for his scientific researches to study the Neoproterozoic ophiolites in the Eastern Desert of Egypt as well as the intrusive carbonate-albitite complex in Southern Sinai, Egypt.  The grants were supported by the US National Science Foundation and NSF-OCE under the US-Egypt Joint Fund Program. He presented his works in many international and local conferences as well as published must of his works in the international journals with high Impact Factors.
He awarded many prizes due to his outstanding contributions to the geology of Egypt, such as: (1) National Research Centre award for the geological Sciences 2007, (2) EREX company prize 2010, (3) prize of the best paper during the 49 Annual Meeting of Geological Society of Egypt 2011,  (4) State Incentive Award in Basic Science (geology) in year 2011, and (5) Misr El-Kheir Foundation Award of scientific publications published in the world's most prestigious scientific journals in 2012.
Dr. Mokhles K. Azer organized and participated in many local and international workshops which funded by foreign international agencies to correlate the geology of Egypt, especially the Red Sea region, with those of other countries. These workshops were focused on the Neoproterozoic basement evolution of Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, in order to better understand this critical period in Earth history. He performed many international training courses in the National Research Centre-Egypt for the international scientists in the field of Geology.
He taught at several international training programs in the field of geology, especially for cadres of Tajikistan, Commonwealth countries and Armenia. He served as a reviewer for many international journals in the field of Earth Sciences (e.g. International Journal of Earth Sciences, Lithos, Precambrian Research, American Journal of Science, Central European Journal of Geosciences, Journal of African Earth Science, Journal of Geology and Mining Research, Journal of Oceanography and Marine Science, Egyptian Journal of Remote Sensing and Space Sciences, APCBEES, Arabian Journal of Geosciences, Journal of Geology and Geophysics, Journal of Asian Earth Sciences). He presented many Scientific Programs in the Egyptian TV, especially in the scientific channel (e.g. Higher Education Channel, Nile Culture, Nile TV, Dream, Channel 2 and Manara TV).  He is a professional membership in many international and local societies.
Dr. Mokhles K. Azer traveled several times to abroad (China, Norway, Jordan and Saudi Arabia) to participate in some international conferences and workshops. Dr. Mokhles K.
