I graduated from Exeter University in 2019 having completed a BSc in Psychology and Middle Eastern Studies, which gave me an interest in using psychological approaches to shed light on issues related to minority groups, humanitarian crises and politics. I am currently reading for an MSc in Global Public Policy at SOAS, London, which provides me with a toolkit to examine how policy actors (from individuals and grassroots organisations to MNCs and governments) can tackle global issues.
In my past roles at the Omani-British Friendship Association, Anglo-Omani Society, and as an independent consultant, I focused on energy transition, economic diversification, wildlife conservation and gender equality. I have also taken part in delegations on smart cities, sustainable energy and conflict resolution. In my spare time I work with a thinktank focused on the humanitarian uses of drones.
Client and Project Experience:
Stakeholder engagement experience from OBFA and AOS where I worked with companies including HSBC, Shell, Dentons and Ithraa. In Jordan, I was involved in Shell’s corporate responsibility project to pass its chemical analysis laboratory to the government there.
Person I most admire:
Elif Shafak, whose writing I find uplifting, particularly on themes of harmony despite differences and of open-mindedness triumphing over hate.
