Yasmine Jabali awarded A PHD in
Environmental Engineering

Mrs. Yasmine Jabali has successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis dissertation entitled: “Development of Analytical methods for the Evaluation of the Contamination of Water by PAHs and Pesticides along the Basin of Abou Ali River in North Lebanon” on December 4, 2017. The project was done under a co-tutorship convention between the University of Balamand and the University of Strasbourg, France. It was supervised by Professor Mervat El Hoz- University of Balamand, and Professor Maurice Millet - University of Strasbourg. The jury members consisted of Dr. Jhonny Gasperi, University of Paris Est – Créteil, Dr. Salem Hayyar, Lebanese University, Dr. Ramia Al Bakain, University of Jordan, and Dr. Fawaz El Omar, Lebanese University.

Briefly, the research work of Dr. Jabali focused on the development of two analytical methods for the determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and pesticides in water. Both methods were then applied for the analysis of surface and groundwater samples taken from 30 locations along the watershed of Abou Ali River in North Lebanon. The jury members declared their satisfaction of the work done by Dr. Jabali and affirmed the importance of the results obtained as a preliminary database not only for the protection of water systems in the study area, but also to inform residents about the quality of their water resources and provide a long-term perspective for better management of the water situation in the city of Tripoli. ​​​​​​
