Development Manager at the American University of Beirut, Nature Conservation Center: Contributing Researcher, Open and Collaborative Science in Development Network: Co-founder, Daskara
I’m an environmental innovator focused on transdisciplinary approaches to developing and applying science and technology with and for communities. As a Gilman and Stronach Scholar, I studied at the University of California, Berkeley (UCB) where I focused on environmental and social hydrology and conducted honorary research on hydro-ecological responses to changing land use and climate patterns.
I worked with U.S government agencies on marine plastic and Native American water rights and now at AUB-NCC, I have managed the development and launch of 9 projects and 3 start-ups working on co-creating science and living solutions to environmental crisis. I’m a contributing researcher on open data in sustainable development and hold certifications from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in water data applications.
