logo-cv2.jpgAnissa LOUNES-Hadj Sahraoui was born in Alger (Algeria) in 1967. She received her PhD from the Institut National Polytechnique de Lorraine (INPL) in Biotechnology and Food Industries in 1994 at the National School of Agronomy and Food industries (ENSAIA) in Nancy. In 1998, she became Assistant Professor at the University of the Littoral Cote d’Opale, where it contributes to the development of a new research theme on assisted phytoremediation by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi. In 2006, she supported her HDR.

Her research activities fall within the general context of the Environment and Sustainable Development. They focus on the potential use of arbuscular mycorrhizae in phytoremediation (phytorhizodégradation, phtostabilisation) of polluted soil and protecting plants against stress induced by various pollutants and plant pathogens. Its work to target both fundamental and applied, are led from the laboratory scale to that of workshops sites. It also has a particular interest in the study of the impact of pollutants on the beneficial microflora of the soil and the development of ecotoxicity tests (lipid markers of oxidative stress, and genomic enzyme).
