I was born and raised in Damascus, Syria, and have worked and lived in the UAE, Bulgaria, Sweden and the UK. I have founded and co-founded several companies that provide innovative solutions in the fields of architecture, design, technology and business. My educational background spans architecture, urban planning, business and political sciences. Before starting the MPP, I completed an MSc in Environmental Governance at the University of Oxford. I am interested in the intersection between business and policy and how both could work hand in hand to address the most pertinent problems. Moreover, I am interested in the development of better living environments and the cities of the future. I am a tireless optimist, expert problem solver and, secretly, a music composer!
