About Me

Hi there! My name is Ahmed Allam, and I am a postdoctoral fellow in the Smart Structures & Dynamical Systems Lab (SSDSL) at Georgia Tech. In my work, I try to balance theory, simulations, and experiments in the fields of acoustics and smart materials. My research include:

  • Piezoelectric transducers modeling and design
  • Active and passive acoustic metamaterials and phononic crystals
  • 3D-printed acoustic materials
  • Using ultrasonic waves to transfer power and information
  • Ultrasonic phased arrays and non-destructive testing (NDT)
  • Acoustic testing and automation

I am a mechatronics engineer by training, so I have a good grasp of programming, electronics, and mechanical design. I plan to use this knowledge to communicate with scientists and engineers from different backgrounds, to coordinate interdisciplinary work on different levels.
