I am Professor of physics at the University of Ferhat Abbas-Sétif1, Department of Physics. I am also the actual Director of the Dosing, Analysis and Characterization Laboratory (DAC-Lab.).  The focus of my actual research activities is on radioanalysis and imaging techniques development and application. My research crosscuts a range of areas in medical physics, radiation dosimetry, nuclear medicine and medical imaging. My overarching goals are to understand how ionizing radiation act on matter and how to be efficiently applied in many fields of science and industry for purposes covering radioanalysis, therapy, imaging, dating,...I published more than 30 articles in various international journals, books, and conference proceedings. I serve as reviewer for many international journals and I organized many scientific events.
