Fahima Bellabad hails from Algeria and boasts a strong educational background in marine science engineering, with a specialization in Coastal Protection and Management. She obtained both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from the National Higher School of Sea Science and Coastal Management.

Presently, Fahima is dedicated to her Ph.D. studies, which revolve around climatology, risks, and the environment. Her research is centered on the dynamics of sea surface temperature (SST) in the Mediterranean Sea. To conduct her research effectively, she employs remote sensing data and Geographic Information System (GIS) tools, enabling her to analyze and map the spatial and temporal patterns of SST across regional and global scales within the Mediterranean Sea.

Fahima is also a GEBCO scholar (2023/2024), which has afforded her the opportunity to pursue a Postgraduate Certificate in Ocean Bathymetry at UNH. This program equips her with valuable skills in data processing and visualization, greatly enhancing her career prospects in the field of marine science and oceanography.

Outside of her academic pursuits, Fahima enjoys taking long walks in natural settings and maintains a deep-seated passion for continuous learning and personal growth. Her dedication to her studies and her commitment to expanding her knowledge make her a promising and accomplished scholar in the field of marine science.
