Mohammed Lahcini was born in 1966 in Rabat. He received both his Master and Ph.D. from the University of Bordeaux 1- France in 1991 and 1994, respectively, under the supervision of Professor Bernard Jousseaume. After subsequent postdoctoral research with Professor Bernard Jousseaume, he started his academic carrier at Cadi Ayyad University in 1995 as Assistant Professor and in 2002 he was appointed Full Professor. During 2002-2019, he was several time as a visiting scientist at Helsinki University with Professors Timo Repo and Marku Leskelaa (2002-20012), University of Hambourg with Professor Hans Kricheldorf (2006-2015), University of Rouen (2010-2012), Qatar University (2013-2016), Zagreb University September 2017, march 2019 and Orléans University September 2019. In 2013, he was the recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Research award for Experienced Researchers. His research covers organometallic and macromolecular chemistry; heterogeneous catalysis for fine chemicals synthesis and homogeneous catalysis in biopolymers and bionanocomposites materials and green chemistry including the chemistry of biosourced materials.
