Abdelkrim Chemseddine was educated at the Pierre et Marie Curie University, Paris, France. He obtained an M.S. degree in spectrochemistry and structure in 1981, a Doctorat de 3me Cycle in the chemistry of isopolytungstates in 1983, and a Doctorat d'État in the sol-gel chemistry of tungsten oxide in 1986. He was subsequently appointed as Research Associate at the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, University of California, Los Angeles, Calif, USA (1986-1987). As an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Guest Scientist he worked at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany, between 1987 and 1989. He spent one year teaching chemistry at the Faculty of Science of the Hassa II University, Casablanca, Morocco. As a Guest Scientist, he worked at the Hahn-Meitner Institute in Berlin, Germany, on sol-gel processing of highly porous semiconductor-oxide films. Since 1991, he has been a permanent staff scientist with research interests in the field of nanocrystals. In 1997, he spent four months as a Visiting Professor teaching the chemistry of nanocrystals and nanostructured materials at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, Ga, USA.
