The topic of PhD thesis is “Elaboration and studies of the physico-chemical properties of phase change composite materials.” Cyrine is doing her doctoral studies under the supervision of  Professor Makki Abdmouleh from University of Sfax.

“First and foremost, I'd like to express my gratitude to Linköping University for providing me with this opportunity. It has made a significant difference in my work. I am ecstatic to be the start of collaboration between the University of Sfax and the Linköping University” says Cyrine.

“We are very happy to start this collaboration with the University of Sfax and we hope to strengthen it with research projects in the near future”, says Mohamed Loukil, Associate Professor and supervisor of Cyrine during her stay at Linköping University.

“International collaboration such this is important to strengthen the research at the division. We are happy to have Cyrine in our lab as a good start of possible long-term collaboration with the University of Sfax.” says Mattias Calmunger, Associate professor and the Head of the Division.
