NASAC Board members - Nov. 2013-Nov. 2016






Name: Prof. Mostapha BOUSMINA
Area of Specialization: Chemical Sciences
Title: Professor
Affiliation(s): Hassan II Academy of Science and Technology, Morocco
Brief Biodata:
Prof. Bousmina’s work has brought crucial contributions for understanding the dynamics of drops behavior in emulsions. He worked out various models that quantitatively describe the complex interfacial behavior in fluid mixtures. These models were the first to provide a comprehensive treatment for viscoelastic media and allow extracting the rheology of emulsions from the knowledge of the morphology, and conversely, the morphology can be extracted from the knowledge of rheology, without any fitting parameter. This work undertaken both individually and also in collaboration with his students has generated numerous papers that are now highly cited in the literature and his equation is now widely reported in specialized rheology books, taught in Universities and used in industry for tailoring specific blends with the desired end-use properties Prof. Bousmina has built the sole instrument in the world that combines rheometry with x-ray, ultrasound, light scattering, birefringence, dichroism, dielectric measurements, magnetorheology, electrorheology and in-situ visualization. Professor Bousmina is presently the Chancellor of the Hassan II Academy of Science and Technology in Morocco and the responsible of the Euromed University project. In 2008 he created the Institute of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology (INANOTECH) in Morocco and acted as the General Director of the institute from 2008 to June 2011.

Our Mandate

The Network of African Science Academies aspires to act as an independent African forum that brings together Academies of Sciences in Africa to discuss scientific aspects of challenges of common concern, to make common statements on major issues relevant to Africa and to provide mutual support to member Academies. Drawing from this, NASAC aims to specifically facilitate the provision of advice to governments and regional organizations on scientific aspects of pertinent issues to Africa 's development through science academies.
