Hamburg University of Technology [ 24 months ]
Société des Produits Nestlé S.A. [ 12 months ]
I am an engineer in energy & propulsion systems graduated from a Franco-German double degree program between the University of Kaiserslautern and INSA Rouen Normandie. Currently pursuing a doctorate degree in engineering, working on multiscale models for reconstitution of compacted powders at the Hamburg University of Technology in partnership with Société des Produits Nestlé S.A in Lausanne.
I have been extremely fortunate to start traveling around the world and learning languages since my younger age from Moscow to Beijing and later to Rouen, Paris in France, Kaiserslautern in Germany and Montreal Canada during my studies. These experiences ignited a love for languages and exploring different culture. At the moment I speak both French and Arabic as they are my mother tongues, English fluently, German at a professional level and I am currently learning Italian!
To conclude, I would say that I love having an engineering background because it allowed me and still allows me to work on many exciting and challenging projects from completely different industries both at a national and international level. I am grateful that I had the chance to keep doing that during my studies and now in my PhD and hopefully in my future industry position.
Compaction of powdered materials is typically performed to improve properties such as bulk density, flowability, dispersability, and stability. Using the knowledge gained through modelling and experiments these properties can be tuned by process to produce high-performance powders. A mesoscale model will be calibrated from the microscale model developed in TUSAIL and will be used for a PBM model, which takes into account all main particle properties, like size and size distribution, form, moisture, strength, rehydration and dissolution.
