Mohamed BALLI

Associate Professor of Physics at the International University of Rabat

Dr. Mohamed Balli is aiming to understand how to particularly make magnetic materials useful in our daily life such as clean and efficient refrigeration, gas storage, cancer treatment and much more. M. Balli received his Master degree in Mechanics of Materials from Montpellier II University (France) and a second Master degree in Magnetism from Joseph Fourier University, Grenoble 1 (France). In December 2007, he obtained his PhD degree in physics of materials specializing in magnetocaloric materials, from Joseph Fourier University, prepared at Néel Institute(CNRS, Grenoble). Between 2008 and 2012, he was Enseignant-Chercheur at the University of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland, before joining the University of Sherbrooke, Canada, where heworked as Senior Researcher at the Physics Department and Quantum Institute until December 2018. Since January 2019, he is Associate Professor of Physics at the International University of Rabat. He is a member of the Working Party on Magnetic Refrigeration, International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR, Paris) and, the international associated laboratory: Quantum Materials and Circuits (France-Canada).He is also a guest editor and editorial board member of the Journal Crystals (IF:2.14). He has published on magnetic materials and systems more than 80 peer reviewed articles in reputed journals (including more than 44 papers as first author).His patent on magnetocaloric LaFeSi-based materials is currently a subject of commercialization and industrialization by ArcelorMittal and Erasteel companies.On the other hand, his research activities on caloric devices have led in 2012to the creation of Clean Cooling Systems (CCS), a Swiss company specializing in the development of green technologies for refrigeration applications and, magnetic field sources. His research work on magnetocalorics has received numerous awards including, Rising Star Researcher award given by the Research Fund: Nature and Technology, Canada (2014) and the “Research and Innovation Prize 2015” from Sherbrooke University. M. Balli has an H-index of 23.
