Djeffal Faycal was elected as an AAS Fellow in 2014. As a fellow, Djeffal Faycal contributes to the development of the Academy’s strategic direction through participation in AAS activities and governance structures. . This gears the Academys vision of transforming african lives through science.
Dr. Djeffal has served at the University of Batna since 2003. He is considered a pioneer in the application of Soft-Computing-based techniques for the study and modeling of nanoscale electronic circuit and was the first to launch Soft-Computing-based nanoelectronics modeling. His research group developed a series of novel Soft-Computing-based approaches for the investigation of nano/microelectronic devices that are now widely employed in many research laboratories. In 2009, Djeffal and his group at LEPCM Laboratory started using Multi-Objective-based optimization techniques to design the nanoscale circuits and photovoltaic devices. They, first, demonstrated the existence of optimized nanostructures configurations. He has published more than 150 journal and conference papers and author of some books and book-chapters in the field of nano/microelectronics and soft-computing. He has supervised 15 Engineering, 12 Masters and 10 PhD these students and is a reviewer of many journals and conferences.
