About me

I am a senior lecturer at the Department of Archaeology and the Director of the History, Heritage and Society Laboratory at the University of Constantine 2 in Algeria. I am currently a research associate at the National Centre of Research on Prehistory and Anthropology in Algiers.
My research focuses on the material culture of the earliest Homo sapiens in Algeria and North Africa and the impact of environmental shifts on human behaviour. I am interested in developing interdisciplinary methodologies to overcome the challenges of archaeological field research in my country and the Arab region. Thereby, I want to contribute to the preservation of archaeological sites, especially prehistoric remains.

Being an AGYA member is a superb opportunity for me to build partnerships with young scholars from Arab countries and Germany. I appreciate interacting and learning with fellow members who are interested in paleo-environmental and cultural issues in prehistory and heritage studies.
