Esma Ines ACHOURI est chercheure postdoctorale à l’école Polytechnique de Montréal en collaboration avec l’université de Sherbrooke, sous la direction des professeurs Jamal Chaouki et Nicolas Abatzoglou. Après avoir obtenu son baccalauréat en génie des procédés pharmaceutiques en Algérie, Ines s’est dirigée vers la France pour effectuer un master recherche en Ingénierie biomédicale et pharmaceutique à l’université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. Par la suite, elle a poursuivi des études doctorales à l’université de Sherbrooke et a obtenu un doctorat en génie chimique en mai 2015. Avec l’expertise acquise durant son projet de doctorat en catalyse et caractérisation des matériaux, Ines s’est vue attribuer une bourse d’excellence de recherche postdoctorale de la part du Fond de Recherche Nature et Technologie du Québec (FRQNT), pour poursuivre ses recherches sur la thématique de la production d’énergie renouvelable.
Member of Prof. Chaouki’s research group since September 2010, Said Samih has been involved in a Ph.D. program with Carbon Management Canada (CMC-NCE). Said has developed the first and the unique fluidized bed thermogravimetric analyzer in the world. The innovative equipment, which was published in the prestigious AIChE Journal, was firstly applied to catalytic gasification of coal and ash free coal. During his PhD, Said has developed a strong background in teaching assistance for different graduate and undergraduate courses. He also proposed and supervised 4 internships for undergraduate students. At Polytechnique Montreal, Said was involved in the Committee of Selection of the Research and Innovation Award, the Board of Directors of AÉCSP and the Students Committee in Department of Chemical Engineering. Said has been also a member of the Board of Directors of the Forum of the Canada-Moroccan Competencies (FCCM), since October 2015. Said has recently started a post-doctoral fellowship in thermal decomposition of phosphogypsum.
Said was graduated from École Mohammadia d’Ingénieurs in Industrial Process Engineering in 2008. In Morocco, Said has worked as Product Engineer with OCP Corporate and Quality Control Engineer with the National Office of Electricity and Potable Water (ONEE).
Shuli Shu was born in Hubei, China in 1989. He is now a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemical Engineering, at Polytechnique Montreal, under the direction of Professor Jamal Chaouki and Professor Francois Bertrand. His current researches focus on numerical modelling and experiments of hydrodynamics of bubble column reactor at high pressure and high temperature for TOTAL and DEM simulation of granular flow in pharmaceutical processes.
He received his Ph.D. degree from the Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences in Chemical Engineering under the direction of Professor Ning Yang and Professor Jinghai Li. He was devoted to developing the multiscale modelling of gas-liquid multiphase reactor system in his doctoral degree period from 2010 to 2016. In the meantime, he participated in numerous projects on CFD simulation with BASF, BP, and Unilever. He obtained his B.Sc. degree in Chemical Engineering from Huazhong University of Sciences and Technology in 2010.
