Dr. Ali Hendaoui received his PhD in Process Engineering from the University of Paris 13 in 2008. During his studies, he worked on the optimization of innovative processes for the production of advanced materials at low cost. As a postdoctoral fellow at INRS (Canada), Dr. Hendaoui worked on the development of vanadium dioxide-based smart thin films and devices for miniaturized satellites. Later on, he worked as a research associate at INRS and was responsible of the activities related to advanced nanomaterials synthesis using plasma-based processes. Dr. Hendaoui's interests include nanomaterials and their applications in energy (Harvesting, Efficiency). In particular, Dr. Hendaoui's work focuses on controlling the functional properties of nanomaterials through their composition and morphology for innovative energy-related applications. Smart materials (such as those experiencing reversible Metal-to-Insulator transitions) and novel advanced materials for energy applications (such as perovskites) are of a high interest.
