M.Sc. class of 2016
I graduated from KAAU, King Abdul-Aziz University, with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, specializing in Microbiology. Since I was a child, marine life and its beauty fascinated me. Therefore, I decided to complete my post-studies in marine science, studying coral reefs in particular. I am interested in the relationship within the coral holobiont from genetics point of view. This understanding will help us protect corals from extinction. This is why I decided to join KAUST and the Red Sea Research Center to achieve my goals and contribute with the protection of marine life.
