I am a PhD student from Prof. Chaouki’s group, graduated in Chemical Engineering from Rey Juan Carlos University in Spain. Before starting a doctoral project on the extraction of rare earth elements from minerals, I acquired some experience on instrumentation engineering working in a project about regasification of LNG and simulating a pilot plant for bio-diesel production. As research experience, I worked also in R&D engineering to optimize an ion-mobility spectrometer (IMS).

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 <a href="http://www.aecsp.qc.ca/">AÉCSP</a> 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).

Gabriel Baptiste, 1st cycle graduated from Polytechnique Montreal (Bachelor in Chemical Engineering) and 2nd cycle from HEC Montreal (Specialized Superior Education Diploma, DESS in management). He started is career as process engineer in a hydrometallurgical plant, in central Africa (Comilog, Gabon), within an industrial international volunteer program (V.I.E.) dedicated to provide international work experience for young graduate. At the Electrolytic Metal Manganese plant of Moanda (EMM), he quickly gained experience in industrial R&D, project and operational management. After coming back to Montreal, he started in the PEARL group, where he specialized his studies in technico-economic analyses for different project, in mine and mineral processing, developed within PEARL group with an industrial partner.
