Graduation Year:

After graduating from Ain Shams University department of Urban Planning and Design in 2011, I worked as a demonstrator at the same university. In 2014, I obtained my MSc. in Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable Design (IUSD) from Stuttgart University in Germany and Ain Shams University in Egypt with special focus on urban development in remote areas. Since then, I have been working again at the Urban Planning and Design department in Ain Shams University and joined the IUSD- Cairo team as a teaching assistant and researcher. My research mainly focused on topics such as: Introducing technologies in remote areas, Neighborhood development and Community based urban development. Currently, I am in a study mission as a PhD candidate in TU-Delft, department of Urbanism with special focus on the active role of the residents in neighborhood governance in the context of Cairo..
