Scientific Director & Professor
The Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM)
Mohamed Siaj received his Ph.D. in Chemistry at Laval University, Quebec, Canada, under the supervision of Peter McBreen, a world leader in Surface Science. Following postdoctoral training at the Colin Nuckolls group at Columbia University, New York, a leading institution in graphene research, Siaj joined the Department of Chemistry at université de Quebec à Montréal as an assistant professor, and he is holding the rank of associate professor since 2012. He is acting as Co-Director of the Research Center on Nanomaterials and Energy (NanoQAM) and Director of Analysis of Materials and Microsystems Regrouping (RAMM), Faculty of Science, UQAM. Prof. Siaj has extensive experience in different areas of surface science and nanomaterials-based graphene. Siaj’s group activities focus on the growth, synthesis, processing and characterization of advanced nanostructured electroactive materials and their integration into chemical and biosensors.
