Studying MS. Exercise Science at HBKU has helped me discover my true passion and purpose. I am ambitious in becoming an associate professor and pursue scholarly research and publications in scientific journals. I believe completing a PhD Program will help me develop valuable transferrable skills that will allow me to reinforce Qatar’s 2030 vision for human development (a more educated and a healthier population). Pursuing a Ph.D. degree resonates with my heart and talent as I’m very passionate in acquiring new knowledge and aiming to make a positive change in society by leading innovative research work.
Since a young age, I have always had an interest in Science, especially Biology. That is why I chose Biomedical sciences as a major for my bachelors degree. But my ambition didn't have a limit and I set a new goal to pursue a PhD. CHLS-HBKU made it possible to make my dream come true after ten years of searching for an appropriate graduate program, as it was the first university to offer a PhD program in Biological and Biomedical Sciences in Qatar.
My undergraduate research experience triggered my passion for research and CHLS provided the golden opportunity to pursue my Ph.D. in Biological and Biomedical Sciences while being close to home. The state-of-the-art research facilities and excellent supervision are a perfect amalgamation to nurture budding scientists in Qatar.
