Amine Slassi studied Physics at Mohammed V University of Rabat (Morocco). In December 2015, he received a PhD degree from the same University entitled ‘’ Fundamental Properties of Metal Oxide-Based Transparent Conducting Oxides: Ab Initio Insights’’ under the supervision of Prof. A. El Kenz and Prof. A. Benyoussef. The purpose of his PhD work was mainly focused on understanding the fundamental physical properties of metal oxides, including structural, electronic, optical and electrical properties, in order to look for new metal oxide materials candidates for Transparent Conducting Oxide Applications. To do so, the First-principles Density Functional Theory and Semiclassical Boltzmann Transport Theory were employed. Since October 2016, he has joined the Laboratory for Chemistry of Novel Materials at University of Mons (UMONS) as a Postdoctoral researcher. His field of work deals with the theoretical study of interactions between two-dimensional (2D) transition metal dichalcogenide heterostructures.
