 Dr. Mosto Bousmina, 2000


Mosto Bousmina has received the Morand Lambla Award in 2000 for his work on polymer blends and his innovative ideas about the complex diffusion at polymer/polymer interfaces. Bousmina's background is in physics. After his engineering diploma from EAHP, he completed his MS.c and his PhD in 1992 at the Louis Pasteur University, Strasbourg, France in collaboration with the Illinois University of Chicago, USA.


He then completed his post-doc at École Polytechnique of Montreal, Canada from 1992 to 1994, with professors Carreau and Schreiber. In 1994 he joined the department of chemical engineering of Laval University in Quebec City in Canada, where he is now full Professor and the holder of Canada Research Chair on Polymer Physics and Nanomaterials. Presently, he is the director of Polymer Engineering program at Laval University, Editor for the Americas for the Journal of Polymer Engineering and director for the Quebec section of SPE (Society of Polymer Engineers). He acted as the president of Quebec Polymer Society (SQP) from 1999 to 2001 and Director of graduate studies at the department of chemical engineering at Laval University from 1996 to 2002. He was an active member of CERSIM (Centre de Recherche en Science et Ingénierie des Macromolécules) from 1994 to 2002 and currently he his member of CRASP of École Polytechnique of Montreal (Centre de Recherche Appliquée sur les Polymères).

His research work is dealing with theoretical and experimental rheology and processing of polymeric multiphase systems and nanomaterials. He is world wide known for his theoretical modeling in the area of rheology of liquid mixtures and polymer blends. He is the author of more than 100 scientific publications and 5 patents. He received various awards: Louis-Pasteur Award in 1993 for the best Ph.D in France on Polymer Physics, Award for the innovation in research from the Quebec ministry of Commerce and Technology in 1998, and Canada-top-20 young explorer Award in 2002 from CIAR (Canadian Institute for Advanced Research) given to the 20-best researchers in Canada in fundamental and applied sciences aged under 40. -Mosto Bousmina has a French and Canadian citizenships and he is one of the most known actual scientists from Moroccan origin.
