About me

I work as Biotechnologist at the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture, Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE). My main research interests are Plant Eco-Physiology, Plant-Biology, Water Conservation, Soil Improvement, and Salinity Management.

During my higher education, I gained a lot of laboratory experience in chemistry, biology, and geology, both at labs and fields. My research stays abroad, e. g. in Gießen and Hannover, Germany, made me aware of how beneficial international scientific exchange can be.
