Research Projects

  1. 2015-2018 : Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Reform in the Public Sector in Morocco (PI). Project funded by MESRSFC/CNRST, conducted in collaboration with the ministry of health in Morocco to investigate and improve the drivers of the drugs supply chain performances.
  2. 2007-2008 : Safer European Level Crossing Appraisal and Technology (SELCAT )(Co PI). SELCAT is a coordination action funded by the European Commission and led by the Technical University of Braunschweig whose objective was to contribute actively to the reduction of level crossing accidents. It involved several partners from Europe, Asia and Morocco. My role in this project consisted of developing a Risk Assessment framework for Road-Rail Level Crossings that can be used to build a generic level crossing risk model. This will lead to increase the understanding of the risk profiles at level crossings and will allow risk based decision making to take place via a structured representation of the causes and consequences of potential accidents arising from the operation of level crossings. 
  3. 2008-2010 : Semi Solid Processing of Steel -- Action COST541(CO PI). The main objective of the Action is to develop an industrial applicable process for the thixoforming of steel alloys, as well as for the control of the whole production chain, including material and tool developments. My contribution in this project consists of the design, set-up and optimization of sophisticated devices of a process chain for the fully automated production of a thixoforming process for steel parts. 
  4. 2006-2008 : Project CITI: ICT for teaching Sciences in Moroccan Middle schools(CO PI). This project was funded by the Korean agency, KOICA, The objective of this project is to assess the impact of the introduction of ICT on the quality of learning of Mathematics, Physics and Natural Sciences in Morocco middle school. My role was to design and plan and run this long term expriement with the objective of assessing quatitatively and qualitatively several hypotheses of interest.
