Since the formation of the university, the faculty members at American University of Sharjah (AUS) have time and again expressed the talents they possess through the work they do, both at AUS and outside of it. Dr. Nidhal Guessoum, Professor in the Department of Physics at the AUS College of Arts and Sciences, is one such professor.
