»»View BiographyProf. A. Abdelghani is a Full Professor at the National Institute of Applied Science and Technology (INSAT, Tunisia) working mainly in the field of Microsensors and Microsystems. He obtained the master degrees in "Microelectronic Devices" at the INSA of Lyon (France) in 1994, then a Ph.D thesis from Ecole Centrale of Lyon (France) in 1997. He obtained a post-doc position in Germany between 1997-2000 in the field of biophysics. He obtained the Habilitation in Physics in Tunisia (faculty of Science of Tunis) in 2004 and a Habilitation (worlwide recognition for conducting and leading research) in "Sciences pour l'Ingénieur" in 2009 at the Ecole Normale Supérieur de Cachan (France). He organized three International Conferences in Tunisia in the Field of Nanotechnology (2009, 2012 and 2014) with the Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation (Germany). He is now the leader and principal investigator of a research group working mainly on gas sensors based on functionalized carbon nanotubes (metallic oxides, nanowires, nanoneedles, polymers) and on the development of interdigitated gold microelectrodes integrated in microfluidic cell for bacteria analysis in biologic medium. He published more than 85 papers in International Journals and supervised more than 10 Ph.D thesis and 10 masters student. He edited two chapters book in the field of optical microscopy and biosensors. Prof. Abdelghani is an editorial board member of several peer-reviewed scientific journals. He was a coordinator of Science For Peace NATO Project (2009-2011), National science Fondation Project (2009-2013), Tunisian Coordinator of Tempus-Project (2013-2016) and coordinator of a recent second NATO-SFP project (2013-2016). Prof. Abdelghani developed worldwide collaborations and industrial partnership and deeply involved in industrial applications in his field.
