Current position: A post-doc researcher

Since my early childhood, being an engineer was always among my brightest dreams. In 2007, this dream took its first step when I joined the Arab International University - Faculty of informatics engineering thanks to a scholarship from the ministry of higher education. During these 5 years at AIU, I have grown fond of scientific research thanks to our faculty professors with whom I attended many fruitful and insightful courses. Having graduated in 2012, I was granted an Erasmus Mundus scholarship - Peace program, which allowed me to continue my post-graduation studies at the University of Nantes - France. Thus, I have obtained a master degree (2013-2015) specialized in the optimization in Operational Research. At this period, I had the chance to do two six-month trainings at Pierre et Marie Curie University – Sorbonne and Ecole des Mines de Nantes. As my passion in research was still thirsty, I started a PhD degree (2016) within the Institution for Techonological Research (IRT-SystemX) and CentraleSupélec Engineering School in Paris. During the three years of the PhD, my aim was to develop optimization approaches that help in synchronizing passenger and freight flows in urban areas. In addition, I had the opportunity to publish scientific articles in some prestigious international journals (e.g. Transportation Research Part B, European Transportation Research Review ETRR), and to participate in many international conferences as a lecturer (VeRoLog 2017 in Amsterdam, Roadef 2019 in Le Havre, INFORMS TSL 2019 in Vienna). In June 2019, I have successfully defended my PhD thesis ahead of scientific committee with members (professors) from France, Netherlands, China, Austria and Italy, and obtained the PhD degree becoming a doctor. Currently, I'm a post-doc researcher at CentraleSupélec Engineering School, Paris - France, so that I can carry on my journey with research. "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams", never stop dreaming and work hard to see your dreams become true.
