About me

I am affiliated at the Institute of Physics, Crystal and Materials Laboratory, Goethe-University Frankfurt/Main, Germany. My research focusses on the growth of new materials such as magnetic, semiconducting or superconducting compounds. Currently, I am involved in the initiative ‘The Elastic Tuning and Response of Electronic Quantum Phases of Matter (ELASTO-Q-MAT), embodied by the new CRC/TRR 288. The goal of this initiative is to understand, advance, and exploit new physical phenomena emerging from a particularly strong coupling between material's elasticity and its electronic quantum phases. To this end, I will study together with my colleagues the effects of elastic tuning and elastic response of various types of electronic order in representative classes of quantum materials that share a high sensitivity to intrinsic strain or externally applied stress fields.

The overall concept lived in this academy is exceptional and I felt a strong motivation to apply for membership. I really appreciate to get in contact with leading experts of various fields of research and I want to establish new research connections to Arab researchers. Interdisciplinary research is predestined to open up new avenues, which could lead to novel applications of materials. My research clearly will benefit from interdisciplinary exchange with e.g. engineers, computer scientists or mathematicians. In addition, AGYA offers a platform for exchange concerning teaching and innovative teaching methods through the working groups. In my daily life, teaching takes an important role and I will enjoy very much exploring different paths that are used to teach natural sciences in different parts of the world!

AGYA values diversity and I would like to take part in and start activities that awaken young women's enthusiasm for the natural sciences.
