Dr. Rahma Tamime
Rahma Tamime WADHO is Assistant Professor of Environmental Sciences at the
Department of Environmental Science and Policy, Lahore School of Economics. She
has PhD (2011) in Environmental Sciences with specialty in Chemical engineering
from Laboratoire de Mécanique, Modélisation & Procédés Propres (M2P2),
Aix-Marseille University, France and M.Sc (2007) in Science in Geosciences and
Civil Engineering with specialty in Science and management of soil and water
from Henri Poincaré University, Nancy, France. Her PhD dissertation was on
Microscopic and optical characterization of organic membranes: An application to
the production of drinking water. This research included three practical papers:
1) Morphological Analyses for UF Membranes: Surface Morphology and Pore Size
Distribution, 2) Membrane Characterization by Microscopic and Scattering
Methods: Multiscale Structure, 3) Membrane Characterization by Microscopic and
Scattering Methods: Powerful Tool to Control Fouling.
Tamime has presented her research work in many international conferences (AWWA,
IWA, ICOM, Euromembrane, AMS6/IMSTEC10…..). She worked as research Engineer at
Suez Environment, Paris, France for three years. She was also teaching
experiments and practical work “Chemical Engineering ", at Institut
Universitaire Téchnique (IUT), Marseille, France. Her published research
