About me

AGYA is an excellent project that gives outstanding researchers the opportunity to promote their academic activities. Therefore being a member of the AGYA community will allow me to share and exchange my ideas and visions. It will also offer me the possibility to develop innovative joint research works, interdisciplinary collaborative projects as well as to enhance my research cooperation with outstanding Arab and German researchers.

My research interests are cruising between mathematics and conceptual physics, such as black holes in string theory, and more recently materials science and more precisely modeling new materials. I am also very involved in supervising new researchers and students. I am active for more involvement of women in science, technology and humanities. As AGYA member, I hope that the interaction with academics from Arabic country and Germany will have an impact on my skills and my record of research excellence and so I will be able to contribute in improving the scientific level of teams and collaborators in my national environment.
