Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering
Sidahmed is assistant professor in biomedical imaging and sensing and a member of Electric and Electronic Engineering Department since Sept. 2022. Before this role, he was an independent Nottingham Research Fellow between 2019 and 2022. He obtained his PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering in 2016 from the University of Nottingham. In 2015, he was awarded a prestigious two-year EPSRC Doctoral Prize Fellowship at the Faculty of Engineering, the University of Nottingham (UoN) to test new concepts in impedance microscopy, a novel technology for label-free characterisation of biological samples. In 2018, he moved to the School of Pharmacy as a postdoctoral research fellow to investigate novel strategies for optical imaging of nanoelectrochemical reactions for bioelectronic and electroceutical applications. In 2019, he returned to the Faculty of Engineering after being awarded a prestigious Nottingham Research Fellowship to set up and lead cutting-edge research in 'voltage plasmonics'. One of the ambitions of this new field is to develop a new generation of impedance micro-spectroscopy technology. This new tool will allow us to understand how living systems generate and conduct electrical signals with novel applications in neuroscience and cardiac science.

Development of impedance microscopy for imaging micro electrical properties of materials and living systems.
Smart pocket sensor for rapid diagnosis of urinary tract infections (UTIs) This project aims to develop a compact and automated instrument for culture-free detection of bacteria in urine. The project addresses the need for developing tools to enable rapid diagnosis of infections. The delay in diagnosis leads to prescription of empirical broad spectrum antibiotics that contributes to the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance.
