Jihad Rachid is a Ph.D. student in Geosciences and Environment – Marine Palynology at the Ben M'sik Faculty of Sciences, Hassan II University of Casablanca, Morocco. Her research focuses on the environmental and climatic variability of the Middle Pleistocene to the Upper Holocene of marine sediments associated with carbonate mounds of cold-water corals in the Gulf of Cadiz and the Alboran based on the marine and terrestrial microfossils, with a detailed assessment of the impact of environmental and climatic variability on the development of cold-water coral carbonate mounds. She holds a BSc in Applied Geosciences to the sustainable environment from Mohammed V University in Rabat, Morocco, and an MSc degree in Applied Geology to prospecting natural resources at Hassan II University of Casablanca. Jihad works as both a Contractual Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant in the Department of Geology, Hassan II University of Casablanca, Morocco.

Her interest in mapping was piqued when she participated in the oceanographic research cruise with the German research vessel Maria S MERIAN (MSM/82) (Montevideo(Uruguay) - Las Palmas de Gran Canaries (Spain)). She is pursuing a postgraduate certificate in Ocean Mapping to gain a deeper understanding of hydrographic surveying and mapping projects.
