The honey bee population is in steady decline which has raised a global warning of their extinction. The loss of honey bees will have a detrimental effect on the availability of our own food resources. Interestingly, providing proper nutrition can help honey bees to overcome various environmental stressors. My PhD will look at whether B-vitamins can play a role in supporting honeybees.


I completed a BSc in Entomology in 2008 with first class honours and an MSc in honey bee physiology in 2014. I have worked as a demonstrator at the South Valley University, Egypt.

Additional roles

Four years as a trainer on the honey bee keeping program for beginners and professionals at "Building Resilient Food Security Systems to Benefit the Southern Egypt Region Project", funded by USAID. 

Member of research team of "Evaluation of Some Insecticides Efficiency on Cotton Leave Worm", funded by Egyptian Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation.

2014 - 2015 I worked as assistant lecturer in South Valley University, Egypt.


My PhD is funded by the "Newton-Mosharafa PhD Fund Program" of the British Council, Egypt
