YCN representative - Morocco

Soukaina Lamnini 

YCN representative from the Moroccan Ceramic Society


Dr. Soukaina Lamnini  hold  a PhD degree in Material Science and Technologies since September 2020 from Obuda University in Budapest, Hungary.  She successfully defended her thesis with «Summa Cum Laude» at the Energy Research Center (MTA-EK) in Budapest. She focused on the synthesis and Tribo-mechanical characterization of Yttria Stabilized Zirconia (8YSZ) reinforced MWCNTs composites using Spark Plasma Sintering (SPS) to overcome the brittleness of the Zirconia matrix at the monolithic state and to tune the capability of composite self-healing against crack propagation. She worked as a postdoc researcher at Politecnico di Torino, Italy under the framework of NewSoc project aiming at improving the performance and durability of SOFCs compared to the state of the art. She has a matured experience in various disciplines related to glass paste formulation for robocasting, development and thermal characterization (HSM, DIL, DTA) of glass sealing and joining for SOFCs as well as the optimization of MnCu spinel coatings on steels using Electrophoretic deposition. 

Besides her research activities, she has been deeply involved in several scientific manifestations and joined the department of Industrial Engineering of the University of Padova, Italy as a visiting researcher. In 2019, she represented the Hungarian Ceramic Society in the student speech contest in Torino and in 2020 she attended the January 2020 ACerS Winter Workshop in Daytona Beach, Florida thanks to a grant award provided by the JECS Trust. Today, being honoured to represent YCN in Morocco Dr. Soukaina is strongly committed to tightening and ease the Moroccan/European collaboration and correspondence by gathering a network of young and senior researchers highly motivated to advance in the field of technical ceramics for a wider and useful implementation in our societies.
