I am a Ph.D. student in the Reef Ecology Lab in the Red Sea Research Center at KAUST. My research focuses on sea turtle ecology, assessing major threats including heavy metals, plastic, and climate change. I am also interested in movement ecology, and have satellite tagged nesting and foraging green and hawksbill turtles to understand their habitat use to inform conservation plans in the Red Sea.
I am passionate about travel, conservation, marine ecology, and science communication. Please explore this site to learn more about me and my interests.
