PhD Research Student


I graduated from the Faculty of Medicine at Tanta University, Egypt in 2013. After that, I started my clinical training in Ophthalmology.

I completed my MSc in Clinical Ophthalmology in 2018 and worked as an Assistant Lecturer of Ophthalmology at Tanta University.

During my career, I have combined clinical work in ophthalmology with research and teaching, aiming to improve the current medical care for our patients and train the next generation of young ophthalmologists.
