Nassima Benbrahim did her undegraduate studies in Tizi-Ouzou and in Algers, and her PhD at the University of Grenoble, France. She is currently coordinating Magnetic Nanomaterials and Electrochemistry experimental activities in Tizi-Ouzou.

Magnetic Nanomaterials and Electrochemistry was started in the last decade at Tizi-Ouzou university by our research group chaired by my a male colleague (A. Kadri) and myself. This activity consists in developing simple and economic techniques to study and make thin material films. The choice of electrochemistry indeed offers the advisability of having a fast impact on the local industry in various fields (corrosion, electro synthesis of materials, storage of energy). The choice of magnetic nanomaterials offers a possibility to interact with high technology field (magnetic recording) thus to maintain exchanges with European laboratories and to develop projects of common interest. It may allow also to join together physicist and chemist in the material science topic, and to incite and improve the electrochemistry teaching in the chemical department and magnetism teaching in the physical department in our university.
