Résumé :
Mohamad Ibrahim est titulaire d'un diplôme d'ingénieur en génie mécanique de l'Université Libanaise et d'un Master en énergie appliquée de l'Université Américaine de Beyrouth. Il a obtenu son doctorat en énergétique à l'Ecole des Mines de Paris en 2014.
Mohamad a travaillé trois
ans dans la division Bâtiment et Systèmes Thermiques du CEA à INES avant de rejoindre l'Université de Nice Sophia Antipolis en tant que maitre de conférences. Il enseigne au département des bâtiments durables et intelligents et effectue ses recherches au Polytech'Lab à l'école polytechnique Nice Sophia.
Ses intérêts de recherche comprennent la conception de bâtiments passifs et intelligents, les enveloppes de bâtiments multifonctionnelles, les systèmes d'énergie renouvelable intégrés aux bâtiments, les matériaux pour l'efficacité énergétique et les concepts de bâtiment intelligent. Il utilise des techniques numériques, expérimentales et de simulation pour l'évaluation de la performance des systèmes physiques. Il est auteur et co-auteur de plusieurs publications dans des revues et conférences internationales et co-auteur de deux brevets.

Mohamad Ibrahim holds also a Mechanical engineering Diploma from the Lebanese University and a Masters Engineering degreein Applied Energy from the American University of  Beirut. He has received his PhD degree in in energy engineering from the Ecole des Mines de Paris (Mines ParisTech), a foundind member of PSL Research University.
Mohamad has worked three years at the Building and Thermal systems division at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) before joining the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis as an Assistant Professor. He teaches in the Department of Sustainable and Smart Buildings and carries out his research in PolyTech’Lab at the Polytechnic school of Engineering.
His research interests include passive and smart building designs, advanced multi-functional building envelopes, building integrated renewable energy systems, advanced materials for energy efficiency, and low carbon technologies for buildings. He uses numerical, experimental and simulation techniques for the performance assessment of physical systems. He is the co-author of two patents and is the author and co-authored of several articles in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and international conference proceedings.
