I am a PhD student at the University of Sussex broadly interested in applying psychological research to create social change. 

I completed my undergraduate degree at the American University in Cairo where I took interest in community psychology and systemic change, then I went on to complete my MRes in Psychological Research at the University of Sussex. Following my MRes, I worked for the UN World Food Programme where I primarily assessed the vulnerability of Syrian refugees in Egypt, and monitored the outcomes of WFP's assistance provided to vulnerable Egyptians and Syrian refugees. My curiosity and passion for research led me to take on a PhD role to understand how social psychology can influence people's sustainable behaviours.
