I was born in Cairo (Egypt) and studied Biology/Biochemistry at Ain Shams University in Egypt, where I received my M.Sc. degree in 2009. In 2010, I assigned to the National Research Centre (NRC) of Egypt as an Assistant Researcher. I am currently doing my PhD within the IMPRS for Evolutionary Biology in the Department of Molecular Physiology at the Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, supervised by Prof. Dr. Thomas Roeder. I am working on the Drosophila model for human inflammatory bowel disease.
In my free time, I like doing voluntary work, and practicing sports.
