Imane Mahroug is currently doing her PhD thesis in cotutelle between Bordeaux University (I2M-TREFLE research laboratory), and the University of the Basque Country UPV/EHU (CIC energiGUNE research centre), her research is focused in the development of new composite materials for compact thermal energy storage emphasizing energy recovery. She graduated in material science engineering, and obtained her master degree in surface engineering from ENSMM (Algeria) in 2015. She also received a master degree in materials for energy and transport from INSTN-Paris Saclay University in 2017.
