Prof. Shaaban Khalil

Prof._Khalil_.jpeg is one of the prominent High Energy Physicists in the Middle East. He is well known by his outstanding contributions to understanding of possible new physics beyond the standard model of particle physics. Prof. Khalil is the founding Director of the Center for Fundamental Physics at Zewail City of Science and Technology in Egypt, since 2012. He was the Director General of Research at Zewail City from 2015 to 2018. In 2014-2015, Khalil has been nominated by Prof. Ahmed Zewail as a tenured professor. This promotion was based on the evaluation of his research, teaching and community service by six external professors chosen by professor Zewail himself.

In 1997, Khalil received his PhD in Supersymmetry Phenomenology, and then he was awarded the Fulbright fellowship at Bartol Research Institute in Delaware University in the U.S. From 1999 to 2004, Khalil held positions as a research and postdoctoral fellow at the Physics Department in Madrid University, Sussex University and the Institute of Particle Physics Phenomenology at Durham University. Khalil’s work enabled him to obtain the D.Sc. degree in 2006 from Ain Shams University refereed by the Royal Society in the UK. In 2012-2013, Khalil received the Leverhulme visiting professorship at the Physics Department in the University of Southampton; he has been a visiting professor there since then. Khalil is well known for his contributions to understanding new phenomena beyond the Standard Model of particle physics. He also has contributions in theory of elementary particles, in particular Supersymmetry and the interface between particle physics and cosmology.

Prof. Khalil is the co-author of the book Supersymmetry Beyond Minimality: From Theory to Experiment CRC Press, ISBN 9781498756730, published in 2017. He has published more than 200 scientific papers in renowned scientific journals. In 2017, Khalil became the founding Editor-in-Chief of Letters in High Energy Physics (LHEP) journal. He is also a reviewer for many international physics Journals. In 2020, Khalil was appointed as a member of the International Advisory Board of the Indian Journal of Physics (IJP) for five years. IJP is an esteemed International journal founded in 1962 by Sir C. V. Raman who won the Nobel prize for physics in 1930.

In 2020, Khalil has also been nominated as a member at the International Astronomical Union (IAU). Khalil is Egypt’s link person in the CMS experiment at the LHC. He was also the founding team leader of the Egyptian Network of High Energy Physics (ENHEP) at the CMS experiment from 2009 to 2012. Khalil is the chair of the African Academy of Sciences Membership Advisory Committee in the field of Physical Sciences, a member of the Research Council for Basic Sciences at the Academy of Scientific Research and Technology, and a member of the Executive Board of the Egyptian Network of Nuclear Sciences. Dr. Khalil has been nominated as a chair of "Africa Synchrotron Initiative" Committee. Khalil’s research has been widely recognized and as a result he has been honored with a great number of local and international awards like Egypt Award for Excellence in Basic Science in 2006, Misr El-Kheir Award for Most Cited Researchers in 2010, Egyptian Award for Encouragement in 2000, The Shoman Award for Arab Physicists in 2001 and The International Award of Istanbul University in Science in 2004.
