Diaa Abd El Moneim received his Ph.D. in plant molecular genetics from Complutense University of Madrid- Spain, in 2012. Between 2012 and 2014, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the national biotechnology center – in Madrid –Spain. He joined the Deanship of preparatory year –at Jouf University – K.S.A. as an Assistant professor of Biology. Since 2020 he has served as an Associate professor of genetics at Arish University, which is responsible for Lecturing about advanced applications for plant molecular genetics; Organizing meetings and building relationships with national and international institutes; Supervising graduate/undergraduate researchers; and leading research projects in assessing cereals crops under the different abiotic stress. During his Ph.D. and postdoctoral studies, he was skilled with advanced molecular genetics techniques, which helped him study molecular breeding of cereals crops, particularly for abiotic stress tolerance. Generally, his research interests focused on the isolation and characterization of abiotic stress-responsive genes and proteins, physiological and molecular mechanisms of the abiotic stress response, and tolerance. Also, study intracellular signaling pathways required for plants to coordinate stress responses under various abiotic stresses.

I am a senior research fellow studying marine organism responses to environmental change based at James Cook University in ARC Center of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies. I undertook my PhD at the University of Queensland where my thesis investigated links between stress and disease in reef building corals. My research encompasses coral biology, microbial ecology, molecular biology, and I utilize a whole organism/ whole system approach to understanding change in marine systems.

Researching the assembly of cell surface appendages in archaea and their role in adhesion and biofilm formation. The model organism we study is the hyperthermophilic archaeon Sulfolobus acidocaldarius. We use genetic approaches to identify systems in Sulfolobus that are involved in the assembly of cell surface appendages and biochemically characterize the subunits and their interplay in the assembly process.
