AGYA Alumni Jointly building bridges into the future
Since completing my Ph.D. at the Botanical Institute in the Faculty of Chemistry and Biosciences at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, I have worked as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Horticulture at Damanhour University in Egypt. In addition to teaching, I regularly seek out opportunities to collaborate and conduct research abroad, which in recent years has taken me to Japan, Belgium, and the United Kingdom for research stays. I also maintain ongoing collaboration with Dr. Islam El-Sharkawy at Florida A&M University and Dr. Sherif Sherif at Virginia Tech, both in the United States. My projects include conducting bioinformatic analyses on peaches, apples, and grapes, with the aim of studying bud break, fruit ripening, and stress.
I fully believe in collaboration and networking. By joining AGYA, I have a great chance to build networks and establish collaborative relationships with talented researchers from a wide variety of backgrounds. I believe we need to spend much more effort in attracting students to the science sector and motivating young researchers to stick with it. Through AGYA, I aim to initiate outreach activities at the interface of science and society through innovative formats.
