Prof. Mohammed GAROUM
University Mohammed V in Rabat, Morocco

Mohammed GAROUM is currently Professor at the Higher School of Technology of Salé (ESTS), University Mohammed V of Rabat, Morocco since 1995. In 1991 he received his first PH.D in acoustics from the Ecole Central de Lyon France. In 1997 his was awarded his second State Doctorate in Photoconductivity of semiconductor from the Institute of Sciences of Engineering and Scientific Development at Claude Bernard University Lyon I and Faculty of Sciences of Cadi Ayyad University, Marrakech. He has been Director of the Energy, Materials and Environment Laboratory and head of the acoustic team (2005-2017). Pr M.GAROUM is founder and President of the Moroccan Society of Acoustics, since 2010 (Today affiliated to the ICA and EAA). He is also the founder and Head of the "University Center for Research and Study in Acoustics and Thermal: Materials and Building" ( CREAT) at the ESTS since 2015 and Head of the research group “Material Energy and Acoustics” (MEAT) since 2017.

Pr M. GAROUM is Member of the National Commission for Thermal and Acoustic Standardization (more than 70 standards) and a consultant at the Technical German cooperation (GIZ) in training and building capacities in Building Energy Efficiency. He was and/or is still leader of some national and international cooperation projects (Moroccan, Spanish, French, German European and Tunisian) devoted to environmental acoustics, building and construction material acoustics, thermal characteristics of building and construction materials. In 2010 He was the chairman of the First Mediterranean congress on acoustics (MCA2010) and he was invited speaker at many workshop and member or coordinator of a dozen scientific comities of national and international congresses.

Prof M.GAROUM is the author and co-author of more than 80 scientific publications and communications mainly related to :

1. Experimental characterization and numerical simulation of thermophysical and acoustical properties of building and construction materials
2. Numerical inverse estimation of thermal and acoustical parameters using based gradient and global algorithms.
3. Experimental characterization of environmental acoustics ( Wind generators noise, road traffic noise …)
