Job title:Deputy Director at DRI

Email Address:

Dr. Mohamed Shaban works currently as a deputy director of the Drainage Research Institute (DRI), National Water Research Center in Egypt. He completed his PhD program in Environmental Engineering (2007) from the Faculty of Environmental Sciences and Engineering, University of Lunenburg (Leuphana) in Germany. He has accumulated more than 20 years of experience in environmental research while working as a researcher in DRI. During this period, He contributed to several researches that were carried out within the international projects:  Drainage Research Program (DRP) Phase I and II (Dutch-Egyptian projects).  Monitoring and Analysis of Drainage Water Quality (MADWQ) (Dutch-Egyptian Project)  National Water Quality and Availability Management (NAWQAM) (Canadian-Egyptian Project)  Enhanced Water Resources Management (Global Environmental Facility - GEF Project ID: 3991)  Sustainable Agriculture Drainage in the Nile Delta of Egypt (STDF Project- USC17-181) In the Leuphana University, He joined the research team of Prof. Dr. Brigitte Urban. This team worked in environmental research, oriented on the model of sustainable development and focusing on the reciprocal impact of human activity on the environment. Within working times in DRI and Leuphana, He contributed in designing experiments, collecting, processing and analyzing environmental data (mainly crop, soil, water quality and quantity data), interpreting and presenting results as well as writing reports. He is also working as a lecturer within the framework of the international training course "Soil and Water Management) held in the Egyptian International Center of Agriculture (EICA) in Cairo. The course aims at training representatives from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Caribbean island nations in addition to the countries of Eastern Europe and the Islamic Republics newly independent from the Soviet Union as well as Arab countries.
