“I am very passionate about driving positive change in my surrounding and making a better future by working with and inspiring the youth”.  



I am an associate professor at Sultan Qaboos University with a PhD in Structural & Molecular Biology from University College London (UCL) and an MSc in Environmental Science and Technology from UNSW (Australia) where I received the prestigious award “Boban Marcovic Prize in Environmental Science” in 2006. 


Apart from my passion for lecturing, I thoroughly enjoy public speaking and I frequently represent women of the Sultanate at both national and international meetings. I had the privilege to present my research findings in many international conferences around the world including UK, Poland, France, Germany, Netherlands, Lebanon, Kuwait, Qatar, UAE, China, Pakistan, Singapore, Canada, South Africa, Taiwan and USA. More recently I have been invited to deliver several inspirational and motivational talks and mentorships targeted to the youth and women including Harvard, IMD and MIT events. A topic and audience that are both very dear to my heart. I am also a co-producer and presenter on national radio, hosting an engaging program called “The Art of Living". I also have a passion in researching and developing Biofuels and for my advancement of science, I have been granted a fellowship in the World Academy of Science (2019-2015) and a proud recipient of the prodigious "L'oreal UNESCO Award for Woman in Science - Middle East Fellowship 2018". More recently I have been selected by the World Economic Forum as a "Young Global Leader" 2020.
