As a postdoctoral associate at NYU Abu Dhabi, Mai El Sawy continues to make significant contributions to the field of Particle Physics at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, with ATLAS experiment through the UAE Cluster — Professor Marta Losada's group. El Sawy is a physicist with a rich educational background and a track record of research activities in the field of High Energy Physics. She earned her Bi-Doctoral agreement, a dual PhD, from Antwerp University in Belgium and Beni Suef University in Egypt in November 2019. Her thesis, titled "Search for Magnetic Monopoles in the CMS Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)," reflects her dedication to pushing the boundaries of our understanding of fundamental particles and forces. She participated in the upgrade of the CMS Resistive Plate Chambers (RPC) for the LHC during her PhD. Her research has earned her prestigious grants and recognition in the form of the MSCA-IF@ULB (Horizon 2020) grant, showcasing her impact on the international scientific community. El Sawy is not only a remarkable physicist but also a passionate educator. Her role as a physics instructor at the British University in Egypt (BUE) and NYU Abu Dhabi highlights her commitment to fostering the intellectual growth of our students. Through teaching, mentoring, and one-on-one interactions, she imparts her deep knowledge and ignites a passion for physics in the next generation of scientists. In addition, she has extensive experience in organizing international workshops and conferences.
