I graduated from my class in 2009 with a Bachelor's degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. I was appointed a position as a teaching assistant at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology at the Faculty of Pharmacy having been one of the top students in my class. I started studying for my Master's degree in the fall semester of 2010 at the Department of Microbiology and Immunology. My Master's thesis was titled "Study on Oxidoreductases Produced by Bacteria Isolated from the Egyptian Environment". I completed my Master's in July 2014 and was promoted to a position as an assistant lecturer at my department in the same year. In January 2016, I started my PhD at the University of Groningen under the supervision of Professor Marco W. Fraaije. I completed my PhD in January 2020 with a dissertation titled "Exploring per(oxidases) as biocatalysts for the synthesis of valuable aromatic compounds".
