Biography

Ibrahim MO graduated from the School of Science, EG. His Master’s research investigated the eco-physiological responses of some crop plants to contaminated soils with heavy metals, such as aluminum and cadmium. He received his Ph.D. in the field of molecular eco-physiology in 2003, EG. His research was focused on the physiological acclimations and evolutionary adaptations of various living organisms including bacteria, microalgae, macroalgae and plants to changing environmental conditions. Since then, he continued his long journey with teaching and student mentoring. He spent ten years working with his research group and colleagues in the field of medicinal plants research under the agricultural programs along the red seacoast.  Ibrahim Mo has a large pool of published research articles and papers with his students. His citation index under the google scholar Citation metrics is i10-index 23.  His most recent focuses in ecology and molecular ecophysiology with a focus on the Omics applications (proteomics and metabolomics) and gene expressions profiles of medicinal plants.
