About me

My research focuses on the study of the Water-Food-Energy- and Climate-Nexus, more precisely the collection of data for studying the interconnections between the components of the nexus. At this stage, my research colleagues and I completed general comparative studies of the nexus between Morocco and South Africa as case studies on the African continent.

I like to develop interdisciplinary projects with researchers and stakeholders from Germany and Arab countries.

At AGYA, I can explore new horizons of collaboration with fellow researchers aiming for innovative and resilient solutions for mutual challenges.

My aim is to contribute to science communication and science dissemination with an impact on society by working with youth.
