Adham Naji is a Staff Scientist at Stanford's Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC), Stanford University. His research and teaching interests are in mathematical physics and its application to problems in electromagnetic field theory. This includes problems in wave theory, beam physics, field-particle interactions and dynamics, wave guiding, geometric perturbation of resonators, coherent radiation and photon science. He is particularly interested in mathematical analysis, geometry and theoretical techniques that help illuminate our understanding of various wave phenomena and interactions, whether in nature or in the laboratory.

Adham received his PhD in 2010 from the University of Bristol, with the Outstanding Contribution Award (MobileVCE), for his work on the analysis and design of reconfigurable planar resonators using geometrical perturbation techniques. He served in research and faculty (assistant professor) positions between 2011 and 2018, with focus on teaching and research in electromagnetic wave theory. In 2019, he joined the Particle Physics and Astrophysics Department at Stanford University as a Research Scholar, and in 2021 Stanford’s Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) as Staff Scientist. Adham is also an Honorary Visiting Fellow at the University of Bristol, UK.
