I'm a Space Scientist exploring stars and their exotic adventures at the Institute of Astronomy, and a Research Fellow at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge.
Being the first person to obtain a doctorate in astrophysics from a Lebanese institution highlights my duty as a role model and inspires my gender advocacy work in STEM. Ever so eager to share my knowledge and passion, I'm an educator, mentor and a storyteller on my blog Scheherazade Speaks Science, which won the Cambridge University Public Engagement 2018 award.
Public speaking has been a thrilling and integral part of my professional life. I've spoken on the TEDx stage, at the UN, at international astronomy conferences and various interdisciplinary forums.
When not pursuing stellar endeavours 🔭✨, jogging 🏃🏻, gardening🌱or making my signature granola🥣, I would be sailing ⛵with my husband in the English wind!
