About us

Nubian Scientist is an upcoming platform combining a bilingual (English and French) digital magazine and a debate space dedicated to disseminating and discussing scientific advancements and technical innovations in Africa and its diasporas.

Besides well documented articles - written by our scientific journalists and editors in close collaboration with researchers and inventors- communicating original scientific research works or technical innovations to the general public, we will also deliver:

  • Expert opinions and analyses concerning research structures and policies in African countries and the impact of science and technology on the development of the continent; and
  • In-depth interviews and conversations with influential scientists, educators, entrepreneurs, artists, intellectuals, authors, etc., on various topics related to education, science, culture, and the future of Africa.

He was previously faculty and Research Fellow at the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL, US, the School of Mathematical Sciences at Southampton University, UK, the French National Centre for Scientific Research at Lorraine University in Metz, France, and lectured at the University of Comoros where he helped design the first graduate programs in Mathematics. He received his MSc in mathematics from École Polytechnique in Paris and his PhD from University of Lorraine jointly with Paderborn University in Germany. He has made research contributions in the areas of Twisted K-Theory, Non-Commutative Geometry, and Algebraic Topology.
Alain Zemkoho, PhD
Southampton, UK
Alain is a mathematician and Associate Professor in Operational Research within the School of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton and a Fellow of the UK's National Institute for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Prior to joining Southampton, he was a Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham and had previously worked as a Research Associate at the Technical University of Freiberg, Germany, where he earned his PhD in Mathematics. In his research, he has developped optimality conditions and stability analysis results for problems in continuous optimization, especially in Bilevel Optimization and its applications to transportation, Data Analysis, and Forecasting.
Chifaou Abdallah, MD, MSc
Montreal, QC
Chifaou is a neurologist specialized in Epilepsy and a neuroscientist, currently a Research Fellow in Neurosciences within the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) at McGill University, Canada. She was previously a Clinical Fellow at the Nancy University Hospital Center and the University of Lorraine in France where she completed her residency in Neurology. She studied Medecine and earned a MSc. in Neurosciences from Pierre & Marie Curie University in Paris. In her research, she has used functional neuro-imaging modalities to investigate biomarkers of the brain area responsible for initiating epileptic seizures in order to help better targeting brain areas for neurosurgical purposes in patients with drug-resistant epilepsy.
Hamid Ez-Zahraouy, PhD
Rabat, Morocco
