Summary

I’m Engineer Geologist from Faculdade de Ciencias e Tecnologia by Coimbra University (Portugal). After my university studies and more than 10 years of experience as Geotechnical Engineer I’m prepared for any new challenge. Until today, I worked in several huge projects: highways, dam and railways, always with an objective, earn the maximum of competence and know-how to give me the confidence to be a leader for my colleagues and an expert in my domain.
Right now, I’m at western side Algeria in a huge railways project as a Responsible of Quality, Geotechnical and Lab department as Engineer Supervisor and materials specialist working for the project owner.
