Walid Tawfik, is an Egyptian Professor, in laser physics, laser spectroscopy and ultrafast lasers at the National Institute of Laser (NILES), Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt. In 1994 he joined NILES as staff member and promoted as assistant lecturer, assistant professor, associate Professor and full professor in 1996, 2000, 2008 and, 2017 respectively. He received the B.SC, Master and Ph.D degrees in physics, laser physics, and laser spectroscopy in 1992, 1996, 2000, respectively, from Cairo University, Egypt. His interested in the field of ultrafast lasers and ultrafast phenomenon. His research plans are devoted to ultrafast optics and photonics: nonlinear interactions of short laser light and matter using time-resolved spectroscopy for laser-pulse durations from nanosecond to few-cycle.
