A conscientious, curious, and passionate researcher with a scientifically-driven creative mind, always eager to tackle critical problems via balanced, breakthrough solutions.
As a Year 13 student of Dubai College, I have undertaken rigorous challenges in both academics and research, achieving straight A*s and contributing to cutting-edge science by working on multiple projects as an Affiliated Researcher at the BEYOND: Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science, and as the youngest Co-Author of NASA’s Astrobiology Primer 3.0 to be published on astrobiologyprimer.org. I got to write Chapter 9 titled, How the origin of life on Earth can inform us about life as we don’t know it, to be published in Astrobiology journal.
Currently, a Research Intern at CERN, Geneva, I am working 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 and super-selective International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP) program under the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics this summer, I have also taken one of Harvard University’s college credit courses titled, ‘Planets, Moons and Their Stars: The Search for Life in the Cosmos’ as part of Harvard’s Secondary School Program, etc.
A Rise: Global Youth Talent Finalist working on Climate Change as my ‘Big Idea’, with a 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.
I also happen to be the world’s youngest author in paleontology having published my first book, When Dinosaurs Roamed the Earth, at 7. Since then, I have authored a few more including, 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 Young Science Ambassador, Emirates Environmental Group’s Crystal Trophy winner, I am also the Founder-CEO of PAWS for Therapy, and the UAE Ambassador of Organ Donation (declared by the UAE Prime Minister).
At Dubai College, I am the Founder-Head of STEM Talks Society, Founding President-Head of Paleontology Society, Co-Head of Math Puzzle Committee, Senior Leader of Math Society, Editor-in-Chief of ‘Hardwire’, Editor of ‘DC Quantum’ and ‘DConstructed’, and Member of Dubai Astronomy Group.
Today, at 7, I give lectures, conduct workshops and take classes on astrophysics, quantum mechanics, mathematics, prehistoric life, paleontology, sustainability, nuclear science, DNA mutations, limb and organ regeneration, etc.
