Khaled Youssef earned his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at North Carolina State University, USA, in 2003. Currently, he works as a Research Assistant Professor at the same department. His work over recent years has been on several fields of interest including nonequilibrium metallic materials, synthesis, consolidation, mechanical properties of nanocrystalline metals and alloys, thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformations, local structure, deformation, and corrosion properties of nanocrystalline materials, magnesium and magnesium alloys, and mechanical properties of brittle materials (silicon wafers for photovoltaic (PV) industry). In the last seven years, he has given several invited talks and published more than 35 papers (publication citation is more than 600).
