My name is Youmna Mouhamad, I have a Bachelors degree in Chemistry /Physics from Marseille Aix University, an Mphys in Physics from Leeds University and a PhD in polymer physics from Sheffield University. Since graduating I joined the Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating as a research scientist working on the formulation of carbon based inks for various applications including, a piezoresistive ink for large area pressure sensor and a flexible ink for heated garments. Two patents were filed for these innovative technologies. As part of haRFest, a project co-funded by Innovate UK she contributed to the development of a screen printed antenna and tunable capacitor for an energy harvesting device powered by near-field communication. I am currently involved in Hi-Prospect, a innovate UK founded project which aims to increase current collection in solar cells by print conductive copper to using a novel printing techniques.
I am currently looking for opportunities in Africa in in research and development in printed electronics, ink making or science related jobs. I am also looking for collaborative opportunities with a University or company specializing in renewable energy and the storage of energy.
