Different Courses I have taught at the University of Setif  
Semiconductor physics (graduate course); Solid state physics; Quantum mechanics; Atom and nuclear physics; Mathematics for physics; Optics; numerical physics; Laboratory work on nuclear physics; laboratory work on optic physics. Beside these courses that I taught for graduate and undergraduate students, I might help students and researchers in doing abinitio computational calculations using, among other ABINIT, WIEN2k, VASP ... codes. These courses will consist also on practical training (tutorials) in which students and researchers will learn how to use these codes.

RESEARCH PLANS 
I am doing research, in solid state physics (material science) in general and particularly interested in semiconductor physics, at the University of Setif and also working closely with J. Geurts at Wuerzburg-university in Germany and with Ph. Djemia and M. Chérif at the University Paris-13 in France. I am currently working on the project: “Ab-initio calculations of the structural, electronic, elastic and magnetic properties and the lattice dynamics of nanomaterials.” The calculations are performed with the help of the density-functional theory DFT, using the pseudopotential plane-wave method as implemented in the ABINIT code and in VASP code  as well as using the FLAPW as implemented in WIEN2k code. In my research, I do computational work to predict some chemical and physical properties of materials, thus, I may interact with experimental groups.
