Short Bio

Walid Meouche is an assistant professor at the Modern University for Business and Science (MUBS). He completed a B.Sc. in Biochemistry at the University of Maine, France in 2007. In 2009, he earned a M.Sc. degree in Molecular Engineering and Functional Materials from the University of Maine, France. In 2012, he received a Ph.D. in Polymer Chemistry with Excellent distinction and highest honors from the University of Toulon-Sud Var, France. He has a solid background in many areas of nanomaterials, composites, polymeric materials, or innovative building materials; his principal area of interest, as well as his recent research has been in the field of polymers. In the past three years, Dr. Meouche published many papers in internationally refereed journals and participated in many research projects/programs
