Curriculum Vitae

EZZAT ELMOUJARKACH was born in Florida, USA, in 1992. He received his MSc. degree in Nuclear Engineering specialized in neutron chemical dosimetry at the Department of Nuclear Engineering, King Abdulaziz University, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, in 2019. Since 2017, his research interests include Neutron dosimetry, simulation and modeling, and applying 3D printing technology for radiation shielding applications. Also, he did some research studying the effect of nuclear power plants on the environment and the effect it has on Saudi Arabia's carbon footprint. Since April 2020, he works as a research assistant at the Institute of Medical Engineering in the field of nuclear imaging.
