Ahmed Hemida, Ph.D. on Superpeer
Assistant Professor | PhD in Civil Engineering, Missouri University, USA.
Ahmed Maher Abdeldaim Hemida received his bachelor’s degree (Spring 2009) and master’s degree (Spring 2014) in Construction and Building Engineering from Arab Academy for Science, Technology and Maritime Transport (AASTMT), Egypt. Hemida started his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at North Dakota State University (NDSU), USA, for one semester in Spring 2017. He transferred his Ph.D. program to Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T), USA, in Fall 2017. In May 2022, he received his Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from Missouri S&T, USA. He received the Missouri Asphalt Pavement Association (MAPA) scholarship award during his Ph.D. program in 2018-2019 and 2021-2022. Hemida also worked as a graduate teaching assistant from 2009 to 2014 at AASTMT, an assistant lecturer from 2014 to 2016 at AASTMT, and a graduate research/teaching assistant from 2017 to 2020 at NDSU and Missouri S&T. It was his honor to deliver a lecture in the Advanced Materials Lecture Series, International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM), Sweden, and receive the IAAM Young Scientist Medal accordingly. Hemida had research interests in bio-binders, particularly guayule resin, as an innovative approach for sustainable flexible pavement industry. Guayule resin represented one of the guayule byproducts extracted with the main product (guayule natural rubber). The scope was investigating and enhancing the behavior of guayule resin in partial and entire asphalt cement replacement. Hemida’s research got attention of several international journals [e.g., Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering (ASCE) ¬ Resources, Conservation and Recycling (Elsevier) – Journal of Cleaner Production (Elsevier) – Construction and Building Materials (Elsevier) – Transportation Engineering (Elsevier) – Recycling (MDPI) – Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ASTM)] and conferences [e.g., Transportation Research Board (TRB) – Transportation Infrastructure Conference (Missouri S&T and MoDOT)]. Hemida also made peer-review activities for reputable journals and conferences such as Scientific Reports (Nature) – Construction and Building Materials (Elsevier) – Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering (ASCE) – Transportation Research Record (TRR), Journal of Transportation Research Board (TRB) – Multidiscipline Modeling in Materials and Structures, (Emerald Publishing) – Journal of Renewable Materials (Tech Science Press) – Transportation Research Board (TRB) Annual Meeting (Transportation Research Board).
