Research Interests

An Egyptian from Saudi Arabia who is interested in material chemistry, computational biology/chemistry, and medical devices. I’ve interned at various institutions as a research assistant and worked full-time on Saudi Aramco projects that involved synthesizing amine-grafted porous materials for CO2 and water capture from ambient air. Outside of the lab, I’m an avid graphic designer who plays Tetris, chess, and rhythm game player.
