Brahim Aissa

University of Quebec. National Instituet of scientifci Research, and MPB Technologies INc., Canada


Dr. Brahim Aïssa received the B.Sc. and M. Sc. degrees in electrical engineering in 1998 and 2002, respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in materials science at the “Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique; Énergie, Matériaux et Télécommunications, INRS-ÉMT”, Canada, in 2010. INRS-ÉMT is one of Canada’s leading research universities in terms of research intensity, ranked first in Quebec and Canada, respectively. His research deals with the laser synthesis of carbon-nanotube based nanostructures and the investigation of their electrical and optical properties for optoelectronic nanodevice applications. He was particularly interested in developing new routes to fabricate advanced transistors taking advantage of the unprecedented high-mobility of carbon nanotubes and of the carbon nanotube/polymer nanocomposite for flexible electronics, and electromagnetic interference shielding. In 2010, he joined MBP-Technologies Inc. (department of Smart Materials and Sensors for Space missions) as assistant general manager and head group of self healing materials. He is heavily involved in the development of methods for preparing free-form 3-D micro/nanostructures for self-healing materials for space applications and carbon nanotube-Moondust filter. He has coauthored more than 50 refereed journal papers and holds one patent, and has participated in more than 60 international refereed conferences. He is a regular referee in more than 15 scientific journals and involved in many international collaborations. Dr. Brahim has numerous awards and distinctions, including the prestigious "Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada"-researcher award, the INRS-EMT Top prize of the best Ph.D. achievements, and the Ph.D. work selected in the best TOP-10 (2008-2009) scientific discovery in Canada.
