Me in a Nutshell

I’m a doctoral researcher at the Dynamic Legged Systems (DLS) lab. My main research is in Quadrupedal Locomotion Planning and Control.

I received my M.Sc. in Systems and Control: Robotics and Mechatronics in September 2017 at the University of Twente (THE NETHERLANDS) in which I conducted my thesis at the Robotics and Mechatronics (RaM) lab at the University of Twente. During my master studies I worked at the Robotics and Mechatronics Center at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) (GERMANY).

I received my B.Sc. in Mechatronics in July 2015 at the German University in Cairo (EGYPT) in which I conducted my thesis at the Institute of Automatic Control (IRT) at RWTH Aachen University (GERMANY). During my bachelor studies I also worked at the Insisute of Automotive Engineering at RWTH Aachen Univeristy (GERMANY).


Pronouncing my name is supposed to be easy, at least according to my dad. It’s not a common name though (not even in Egypt), so here we go:

Shamel (شامل) means “inclusive” or “complete” or “comprehensive”. You should pronounce it as “Schämel” with a German “Sch” and “ä”.

Fahmi (فهمي) comes from the verb fahima which means “to understand”. You should stress on the “h”.
