I am a senior lecturer in Strategy, International Entrepreneurship and Innovation in the Business School. Having taught in other Universities in the U.K., Qatar and Egypt, I have extensive experience in developing teaching portfolios at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. Additionally, I am experienced in the validation and quality assurance of Higher Education International collaborations as well as student mentorship.
After achieving a first-class honors degree in Business Administration with Distinction, and M.Sc. from the Faculty of Commerce, Alexandria University (Egypt), I was awarded a studentship and a PhD degree from Oxford Brookes University in 2018.
My research focus is on SMEs' internationalization, strategic decision-making, international management, and gender entrepreneurship. With a background in financial management and international business, I combine qualitative and quantitative research to examine decision-making, internationalization, cultural aspects within the context of SMEs.
My research has been presented at internationally recognized conferences such as the Academy of International Business (AIB), British Academy of Management (BAM) and the European Group of Organization Studies (EGOS) . I am extremely proud of my research on female entrepreneurship in emerging economies because it was shortlisted for the Emerald Best International Symposium Award at the gender mainstreaming and governance during the Academy of Management Conference in 2016.
My research has been published in top-tier journals including the International Business Review and the Journal of International Management.
I am also a Co-PI in an international grant of USD 440k, the grant is titled 'The implementation of Qatarization strategy: The status quo, challenges and remedies'; a three years international research project, funded by the Qatar National Research Fund.
