Mohamed Khayet got his degree in Physical Sciences (1990) from the Faculty of Sciences, University Cadi Ayyad of Marrakech (Morocco). He immigrated to Spain in 1991. He had a Ph.D. (1997) in Physics from the University Complutense of Madrid (UCM). He received doctoral and postdoctoral grants from different institutions, e.g. Spanish Ministry of External Affaires (Spanish Agency for International Cooperation, AECI), UCM and Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation. He made various stays in different international institutions as researcher (e.g. Industrial Membrane Research Institute in Ottawa, Canada; Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology in Warsaw, Poland; Centre for Clean Water Technologies at the University of Nottingham in UK, etc.).

He is an expert on membrane science and technology (Membrane design and fabrication, membrane processes, emerging technologies), renewable energy applications (solar thermal and photovoltaic energy), nanocomposites, nanofibres and nanofluids among others. He has coordinated various national and international projects funded by different institutions (European Union, Spanish Ministry of External Affaires, Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, Middle East Desalination Research Center (MEDRC), Abengoa Water, etc.). He is currently coordinator of the EU project TEMPUS (Solar Energy System Design using Advanced Learning Aids, 2012-2015). He participated in other national and international projects (a total of 17 as principal investigator and other 14 as participant).

Current Position:
Profesor of Thermodynamics, Statistical Physics, General Physics, Renewable Energy Applications (in Master on Applied Physics), Thermodynamics of Biological Systems (in Master in Biomedical Physics), Transport Phenomena, Experimental Techniques in Physics. Department of Applied Physics I, Faculty of Physics, University Complutense of Madrid.
