About me

My personal motivation to become a member of AGYA was my continuous thirst for knowledge and my scientific and inherent curiosity to broaden my view for research fields outside my own specialization. I am highly interested in looking beyond the boundaries by getting in touch with scientists of closely and distantly related topics, which will be inspiring and helpful for my studies.


Current projects

     

  • Member of the AGYA Working Group Energy, Water & Environment: We plan to come up with a catalogue of Arab and German opinions on controversial technologies. My major interest in this context is a focus on biology related topics such as "Bioenergy" and "GMOs".
