Research Output per year
I am a Newton-Mosharafa PhD student/Scholar at Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre (SFIRC).
I got my Bachelor degree in Veterinary Medical Sciences from the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Zagazig University in 2010. I received my Postgraduate Diploma in Nano-Biotechnology and Masters in Fish Diseases and Management from Beni-Suef University and Cairo University respectively in 2017. I joined the Scottish Fish Immunology Research Centre (SFIRC) at the University of Aberdeen in 2019 for pursuing my PhD studies in Fish Microbiomics; working on 16s rRNA marker gene sequencing in my first chapter to help understand the mechanism by which the fish gut respond to different diets. My main interest is studying the molecular crosstalk between the gut and the immune systems in response to certain diets. Before joining SFIRC, I was appointed as an Assistant Researcher at the National Research Centre, Egypt in 2017.
I achieved the second-best poster (overall) presented at the 20th (Zebra)Fish Immunology/Vaccination Workshop.
The grants I got so far that helped me in advancing my #Data_Science skills are Million-Arab Coders "Data Analyst Track"; Alghurair Open Learning Program; Egypt Scholars Lab Program "Integrative -omics/Interactome Track" and Coursera Financial Aid for some "Genomics courses".
I had got several funding offers (6-month Egyptian Ministry of Higher Education Visiting Fellowship in USA, 6-month Erasmus Postgraduate Fellowship in Spain, and Misr El-Kheir Qualifying Program Scholarship in Egypt) before going for/settling down on Newton-Mosharafa PhD Scholarship in UK (Egypt-UK bilateral agreement).
During my PhD, I managed to have an online facilitated dialogue experience via the Erasmus Virtual Exchange program with various cultures/backgrounds fellows where I received Erasmus+ badge.
Public speaking is one of the activities I enjoy that is why I was a contestant in several Science Communication festivals particularly Famelab where I joined three times so far.
