  • Joined Al Akhawayn University (AUI), School of Science and Engineering (SSE), in 1995. Worked, for the first three years (1995 – 1998) at AUI, in administering the “Physics and Engineering” division needs. Served, throughout the past three years, as the driving force in establishing a “Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Management” at AUI; in addition to starting major renewable energy projects (solar, wind, energy efficiency and energy storage). Started teaching in Morocco at the physics department “Faculté des Sciences, Université Ibn Tofail in Kénitra” from September 1990. Sill considered as a faculty member at Ibn Tofail wih a special permission to be at AUI. Collaborated, for the five years spent in Ibn Tofail, with faculty members within research groups of electronics and condensed matter in setting up Applied Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics; in addition to a Master of Science degree in Condensed Matter. Taught at Oklahoma State University as a Visiting Assistant Professor for the academic year 1989-1990.
  • Degree : Ph.D. Physics, Oklahoma State University, December 1989 M.S. Physics, Oklahoma State University, May 1983 B.S. Engineering Physics & Mathematics, (Southwest) Missouri State University, May 1980
  • Research areas and expertise : Current research interest deals with integration of renewable energies (wind/solar) within AUI Campus, as well as incorporating energy efficiency within the Moroccan context. Previous research expertise in: phase transition in colloidal suspensions, Monté-Carlo computer simulation for phase transistion, elastic properties of sand stone.

  • Grants and honors : Funding from ONE of 900 000.00 MAD for the project “New Applications for CPV’s: a Fast Way to Improve Reliability and Technology Progress” (NACIR), cooperation of EU with Mediterranean Partner Countries. (2009-2012). Funding of 74 000 Euros from the NATO for the Sahara/Wind project Nato Science for Peace project SfP 982620
