I, Karim Hamiche, was born in Angers (France) in 1986. In 2002, after successfully finishing my high-school studies, I joined the so-called "Classe Preparatoires", preparation class for the entrance examinations of the French engineering schools, "Grandes Ecoles". In 2005, I succeeded in passing the competitive exam to get into the multi-disciplinary engineering school, "Ecole Centrale de Lyon" (France). In 2007, I decided to give my career an international level, and I was accepted for the double-degree program at "Politecnico di Torino" (Italy). There, I studied for the Master degree in aerospace engineering, with specialisation in aerodynamics and acoustics. As a completion of my studies, in 2009, I went to Wolfsburg (Germany) and did my Master thesis at Volkswagen AG, working on some application of Lighthill's aeroacoustic analogy. In October 2009, I finally obtained my Master degrees from "Ecole Centrale de Lyon" and from "Politecnico di Torino".

At this point, I wanted to get some professional experience in a more practical field than theoretical acoustics. From March 2010 until September 2012, I worked for a French company, Cabinet Merlin. I was employed as a process engineer on the building site of the waste-to-energy plant in Turin (Italy). Together with my supervisor in Lyon, some of my duties were to follow the progress of the mechanical and thermical aspects of the construction, quality inspection by the suppliers, interface between Cabinet Merlin and the direction for the work. This experience has been a real education for me, at both a professional and a personal level: I could improve my skills in terms of technique, management, decision taking and human relations in a professional environment. Furthermore, I could never be grateful enough to my supervisor at Cabinet Merlin, Jean-Marc Cecchi, for his constant advice and for giving me the opportunity to show my professional, technical and human skills.

After this positive experience in Italy, I decided to go back to acoustics. Since October 2012, FlowAirS gives me the opportunity to get the technical knowledge in order to become an expert in the field of aeroacoustics. Indeed, as a research engineer at LMS International (Belgium), one of the FlowAirS partners, I work on numerical methods for the acoustic propagation in ducts. Currently with this research work, I am enrolled in the doctoral program at the "University of Southampton" (England), at the ISVR (Institute of Sound and Vibration Research). My supervisors are Hadrien Beriot (LMS) and Gwenael Gabard (ISVR).
