Dr. Sami Rtimi

Sami is a photo-chemist with a strong background in surfaces engineering and microbiology. He was awarded a Ph.D. in Chemistry and Chemical Engineering from Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL, Switzerland) and a Doctorate in Biological Sciences from the University of Carthage (Tunisia). His expertise relates to the design, synthesis, evaluation and surface property characterization of antibacterial films for environmental and medical applications. His current research addresses coupling nanostructures for a targeted biological response at solid-air-interfaces showing potential practical applications. He published several papers in high impact journals in the field, numerous book chapters, patents and presented in several national and international conferences.

He is editor in some journals (Euro-Mediterranean Journal for Environmental Integration, Earth Systems and Environment…), edited some special issues (Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, MDPI-Coatings, Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces) and few books (Nanomaterials Based Coatings: Fundamentals and Applications, Elsevier 2018). He is member of many national (Swiss Chemical Society) and international societies / associations (ACS, RSC, EPS, IAAM). He was awarded some prizes for the transfer of science from lab to applications (PERL, VentureKick, MassChallenge…).
