In January 2016, the Institute welcomed two new members to our Board of Directors. In keeping with our mandate, the Institute relies on scholars from various fields and nationalities to collaborate and help in the success and development of Canadian Egyptology.

Dr. Rasha Soliman joins us from the Misr University of Science and Technology as well as Helwan University in Egypt. She is a Fulbright Scholar who specializes in the study of the Theban Necropolis during the Dynastic Period and the New Kingdom. Dr. Soliman also has extensive professorial experience in the field of Egyptian Tourism. She is currently involved in teaching specialized subjects in Ancient Egyptian Literature, Art and Archaeology at MUST.


Dr. Matthew J. Adams

Dr. Adams received his doctorate from Pennsylvania State University in Egyptology and Near Eastern Archaeology under the tutelage of Professor Donald Redford. He has worked on several archaeological projects in Egypt including Mendes. He specializes in modern technology in archaeology. His experience with photogrammetry, surveying (drones), and mapping will be a tremendous help to the Institute’s Delta Metrological Project starting with Temple S at Mendes during the 2016 expedition.
