Hany has been a Research Fellow within the Advanced Materials and Processing Laboratory (AMPLab) in the Schoolof Metallurgy and Materials, University of Birmingham, since 2012. Before joining AMPLab, he worked on an industrial project entitled "Net Shape Manufacturing of Ceramic Micro Gas Turbine" in the School of Mechanical Engineering's Micro-engineering and Nano-technology Research Centre since 2010. He received his PhD at the University of Birmingham in 2010. His current research project is "Hybrid Silicide-Based Lightweight Components for Turbine and Energy Applications (HYSOP)". The aim is to develop advanced routes for processing aerospace parts based on niobium silicide powder metallurgy using additive manufacturing, net-shape HIPing, and joining.
