Dr. Ing. Mae Almansoori

Principal Researcher

Mae AlMansoori received her M.Sc degree in 2019 in mechanical engineering from Khalifa University, Abu Dhabi, UAE. She served as a researcher in Aerospace Research and Innovation Center focusing on structural designing. Currently, she is working as a senior mechanical researcher at the Directed Energy Research Center, Technology Innovation Institute, Abu Dhabi, UAE and a PhD student at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at the Helmut Schmidt University / University of the German Federal Armed Forces; applying state-of-the-art mechanical engineering processes to high power electromagnetic sources. 

Her research interests cover structural designing, materials and mechanical analysis, additive manufacturing, and heat exchangers. She is currently working on switched oscillators and high power microwave systems such as the Vircator focusing on optimisation problems using statistical methods. Furthermore, she is introducing her knowledge in the current electromagnetic accelerator project at the Directed Energy Research Center. In 2020, She received a "Young Scientist Award" from the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) - German Section during Kleinheubacher Tagung 2020 conference.
