Profile Summary

Dr. Mourad ZGHAL is actually Professor at the University of Carthage, Tunisia. He received his Ph.D in electrical engineering from Tunis El-Manar University in 2000. His scientific activities are mainly focused on integrated optical devices, design and characterization of photonic crystal fibers, and nonlinear propagation of ultrashort pulses. He served at numerous program or steering committee of international scientific conferences. He was co-chair of the 2013 edition of the ETOP (Education and Training in Optics and Photonics) conference. In addition to his research activities, Prof ZGHAL has been extremely active in promoting photonics in Tunisia and Africa. He is the co-founder in 2002 and president since 2012 of the Optical Society of Tunisia. He also co-founded the African Laser Center, an organization encouraging exchange of researchers and students across Africa. He was elected as Vice President of the ICO International Commission for Optics (2014-2017). Prof Zghal received several major awards including the 2008 ICO/ICTP Gallieno Denardo prize for “his original work in the development of numerical modelling techniques for photonic crystal fibres, and for his active commitment aimed at the diffusion of research in optics in Africa”. Prof Zghal is an elected fellow of OSA and SPIE.
