What do stellar music and high-end audio systems have in common? What does the metaverse have to do with space education? Why is now a great time to be a science entrepreneur?
I got on the Imperial Innovation & Entrepreneurship Club podcast to discuss how I bring together space science, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Who I am

I was the first to get a PhD in astrophysics from a Lebanese university. I want to make sure that I'm not the last.

My work lies at the intersection of science, entrepreneurship and education. Thirteen years of research experience in astrophysics lends itself to an ability to think creatively, navigate complexity and drive progress with innovative solutions.
