Prof. Ahmad Salman

Dr. Ahmad Salman joined Shamoon College of Engineering (SCE) in October 2007 as a lecturer in the physics unit after he won the Kahanoff Foundation’s Ma’of fellowship for three consecutive years (2008 – 2010).  He finished his Ph.D. in physics at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in the field of infrared spectroscopy. Today, in his academic work at the college, he is investigating many research subjects using a variety of spectroscopic methods

He is investigating several biological systems and collaborating with various researchers from Israel and USA

The main projects

Infrared microscopy and advanced multivariate analysis for the detection of antibiotic-resistant bacteria
Distinction between bacterial and viral infections based on simple blood tests using infrared microscopy and multivariate analysis
Neurological diseases
Different projects regarding characterization and identification of fungi using infrared spectroscopy


Dr. Salman has served as a referee for many internationally recognized academic and scientific journals

On four separate occasions at SCE, Dr. Salman has been awarded recognition as a leading researcher

In the teaching field, as reflected in his teaching survey, Dr. Salman is considered a good teacher. His office door is always open for his students
