El Hachmi Essadiqi is currently the Dean of Aerospace Engineering school at the Université Internationale de Rabat, Morocco, and adjunct professor at Mississippi State University. His main research interests are in the area of lightweighting materials for automotive and aeronautics applications (e.g., Al – Li), alloys and process design for casting and thermo-mechanical processing and joining: microstructure and properties relationship in ferrous and non-ferrous alloys. Dr. Essadiqi developed a twin roll casting process and design thermo-mechanical processes for new magnesium – RE alloys sheet in CANADA, in collaboration with General Motors, Novelis, MagNET (network of excellence of 5 Canadian Universities) and Helmoholtz Geesthacht Zentrum (old GKSS) in Germany. He is now working on seawater desalination using solar energy, recycling of used water and recycling of solid materials. Dr Essadiqi published more than 140 papers in refereed journals.
