Dr. Aly Saad Aly joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at Georgia Institute of Technology as an Adjunct Assistant Professor in 2022. He also serves as an Assistant Professor in ECE department at the Georgia Tech campus in Shenzhen, Georgia Tech Shenzhen Institute (GTSI). He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of South Florida (USF) in 2005 and 2006, respectively. He earned a Ph.D. in Systems Design Engineering from the University of Waterloo (UW) in 2016. His Ph.D. work focused on microfabrication, microfluidics, and lab-on-chip (LOC) for biomedical applications such as on-chip bacterial cell lysis and DNA isolation.

Dr. Aly Saad Aly joined the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Tulane University during his postdoctoral fellowship. During his work at Tulane University, he collaborated with a team of researchers to design and fabricate a portable platform used in neurophysiological studies. He then joined the Department of Electrical Engineering at Miami College of Henan University. Before joining GTSI, Dr. Aly Saad Aly was a Research Professor at Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science & Technology (DGIST). During his work at DGIST, Dr. Aly Saad Aly worked on research related to cell isolation and purification, hydrogel-based immunocytochemistry platforms, and electroceutical approaches for enhancing neural cell myelination and treatment for sarcopenia. Dr. Aly Saad Aly worked in an industrial environment where he was involved in several projects focused on microelectrode arrays (MEAs): design, simulation, and fabrication; diagnostic and real-time image-guided surgery x-ray bio-imaging systems (such as the C or U arm); design, simulation, and testing of portable electrochemical biosensors integrated into optical imaging systems. Dr. Aly holds a Professional Engineer (P.Eng.) Ontario license. 

Dr. Aly Saad Aly’s research interests focus on microfluidics-based LOCs for biomedical applications. Furthermore, his research interests include nanotechnology-based electrochemical biosensors. Moreover, nanoparticles-based smart drug delivery systems for viral and cancer therapy are one of his recent research interests. Additionally, research work based on smart biomaterials such as responsive polymer sand hydrogel is an active research interest for Dr. Aly Saad Aly.
