A conscientious, curious, and passionate researcher with a scientifically-driven creative mind, always eager to collaborate and tackle critical problems via innovative solutions, I will be joining the California Institute of Technology or Caltech in September 2022.
While I have undertaken rigorous challenges in academics as a Senior at Dubai College, I have also worked on multiple cutting-edge scientific projects as a Researcher at the BEYOND: Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, wherein I have co-authored a paper titled, False Positives and the Challenge of Testing the Alien Hypothesis, to be published in Nature Astronomy. I am also the youngest co-author of NASA’s Astrobiology Primer 3.0 ( I got to write Chapter 9 titled, Life as we don’t know it, to be published in Astrobiology journal.
As a Research Intern at CERN, Geneva, I have worked as part of the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) collaboration on the Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) detectors—a new muon system in CMS at the Large Hadron Collider—to develop a new data acquisition system for one of the detector’s quality controls.
Having completed the highly prestigious, super-selective International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP) program under the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, I have also taken Harvard University’s college credit course titled, Planets, Moons and Their Stars: The Search for Life in the Cosmos as part of its Secondary School Program.
A Rise Global Winner working on a climate change project titled, Network Theory models of mass extinctions, I am also a World Science Scholar—under-18 exceptional mathematicians in the world—a first from the MENA region (at present a Mentor to current Scholars), and member of The Junior Academy, New York Academy of Sciences.
I am also the world’s youngest author in paleontology having published my first book, When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth, at 7. Since then, I have authored, Planet Radioactive and Walking with Prehistoric Beasts.
A Future Stars-Arabian Achievement Award winner, Sharjah Book Authority’s Incredible Talent, TEDx speaker, Femina Middle East’s Young Achiever, British Science Association’s Science Ambassador, Emirates Environmental Group’s Crystal Trophy winner, I am also the Founder-CEO of PAWS for Therapy, a ‘State Asset’ and the ‘UAE Ambassador of Organ Donation’—declared by the UAE Prime Minister.
At Dubai College, I have been the Founder-Head of STEM Talks Society, Paleontology Society, Co-Head of Math Puzzle Committee, Editor of DC Quantum, DConstructed, etc.

Curious and creative.
I'm a problem solver, innovator, and researcher.
