Research
My principal research interests lie in the field of Egyptology, Ancient Religions and Philology. I have a particular expertise and interest in Ancient Egyptian religious and funeral texts and vignettes. I am currently investigating the inscriptions on the late stelae from Akhmim in particular and those of late and Ptolemaic period in general e.g. Kom Ombo and Porte d’ Évergète. My future plans and my broad research interests are to build on the foundations of my PhD to further focus on the topics of the Thoughts in ancient Egypt as well as Hieroglyphic inscriptions as main sources of the Ancient Egyptian civilization.
I am able to read, write and speak Arabic, English, French and German.
