Research Associate, Climate and Weather Data Analysis, Loughborough University

My current research interests lie in climate and weather data analysis, extreme climate and weather events, flood risk, coastal hazards, data visualisation, geographic data science and earth observation. I am also a machine learning enthusiast.

I obtained a PhD in coastal hazards, Faculty of Sciences, Rabat (Morocco) in 2014. In 2015, I moved to the USA for a Postdoc at the IIHR-Hydroscience & Engineering, University of Iowa, where I worked on various projects related to hydroclimatology /hydrometeorology with a focus on extreme climate/weather events. In the summer of 2017, I joined Loughborough University, School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering as a Research Associate in an EPSRC funded project on developing a real-time monitoring and early warning system for urban floods in Colima, Mexico, using a bespoke network of wireless water sensors combined with machine learning.

My background is also interdisciplinary, since, in addition to academia, I have also worked in consultancy and as an administrator in the National Mutual Aid Government department in Morocco, where I was responsible for developing cooperation with associations and NGOs.

Last, I have also worked as a volunteer and founded several associations in the field of research, development, and environment: namely (i) the Association of Young Researchers of the Faculty of Sciences- Rabat; (ii) the Moroccan Association of Geomaticians
