About me

I have previous expertise in the industry as an embedded system Engineer at Zodiac Aerospace Morocco from 2014 to 2019. I recently became a professor at École Nationale des Sciences Appliquées (ENSA) and Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University (SMBA) in Fez, Morocco. I received an engineering degree in embedded systems from ENSA Fez in 2014. In addition to the above, I received my PhD Degree in electrical engineering from SMBA University in 2018. I published and contributed to numerous publications in different journals and conferences in the last few years, most of which related to photovoltaic (PV), solar energy, and embedded systems. In addition to this, I worked on many innovative projects, which are patented. I edited many books and I am a book series Editor with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), and Taylor and Francis publishers. I acted as a guest Editor of different special issues and topical collections. I am a reviewer and on the editorial board of different journals. I am the International Center for Digital Threat Assessment (ICDTA) Conference Co-chair. I am a member of the Arab Youth Center Council and AGYA. I worked on some European projects as lead of work packages and acted as external evaluator and consultant for many European and national projects. 

Being an AGYA member, I am part of a vibrant community of scholars, perfect for fostering interdisciplinary projects. These collaborations can help to improve the application of embedded systems in several  areas.
