Dr. Bop Cheikh

Dr Cheikh Tidiane Bop is passionate by science since his teens. He decided to do scientific studies although his family warned him of the difficulties. Cheikh graduated master degree in 2013 as valedictorian and earned his PhD in physics at the University Cheikh Anta Diop of Dakar three years later. Confronting horrific (but wrong) warnings about the difficulty of science, Cheikh’s main goal is to popularize science and encourage young people to do scientific studies. For this purpose, he taught science in middle and high schools as well as in college. To strengthen his knowledge and find collaborators in order to be better equipped in his fight, Cheikh is today a postdoc in the laboratory waves and complex media of University Le Havre-France.
