I am currently working on the ex vivo biofilm lung model to study antibiotic tolerance in cystic fibrosis in order to improve current diagnostics and understand polymicrobial communities in biofilms. I am interested in clinical microbiology, studying bacterial interactions, biofilms, persistence and antimicrobial resistance. I am also passionate to understand bacterial communities at a single-cell level.
I obtained my PhD from The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, 2018.
Master's in Biotechnology from the American University in Cairo, Egypt, 2012.
Bachelor of Pharmacy, Misr University for Science and Technology, Egypt, 2006.
A Champion for the Microbiology Society, 2019.
Science Communication Ambassador for the Australian society for Microbiology (ASM), 2018.
