Hanane Boumeriame received her dual Ph.D. degree (November 2021) in Chemical & Biological Engineering from the Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto (FEUP, Portugal) and in Materials Engineering from the Faculty of Sciences and Technology, University Abdelmalek Essaadi (FSTUAE, Morocco). She was awarded the highest honors by the jury on her Ph.D. thesis defense. During her Ph.D., she conducted a long-term research stay at the Institute of Materials Chemistry at the Technical Engineering University of Vienna (TUW, Austria), continuing her research on materials engineering, H2 and O2 generation. Later on, she worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at LEPABE/FEUP, developing new electrodes and battery designs for vanadium redox flow batteries.

Hanane has participated in several research projects as a team member in Portugal, Morocco, and Austria. She has also participated in and taught practical courses on various course units in Chemical Engineering at FST Tangier. Additionally, she has provided guidance and supervision to several students from FST Tangier.

Currently, she is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Associate Laboratory LSRE-LCM, within the framework of the Project “Alliance for Energy Transition (ATE)”.
