Biography

  • Amr M. Elhelw received Ph.D. degree from Staffordshire
    University, Faculty of Engineering and technology,
    UK. He was awarded B.Sc and M.Sc degrees
    from Arab Academy of Science, Technology Maritime
    Transport, Collage of Engineering and Technology,
    Egypt. During his early career he worked as a
    Researcher and Part Time Lecturer at Staffordshire
    University. He was granted Gradex 2007 Award for
    the Best Research Done in 2007 from Staffordshire
    University. His research work is mainly focused on
    telecommunication, digital signal processing, artificial
    intelligence, pattern recognition, and video and image processing. He is
    particularly interested in developing new techniques and carrying out high quality
    research to emphasize real-world applications. He held the university position
    of quality assurance coordinator. He is currently Director of International
    Agreements & Cooperation Unit (IACU).
