I started my journey at the American University of Beirut where I obtained a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. By the end of my degree, the neuroscience side had won me over, so I decided to join the MSc Neuroscience programme at King's College London in 2014. My interest in brain anatomy led me to specialise in tractography which I currently apply to the study of the visual system. This choice came as no surprise given my love for the visual medium and photography which pre-date my neuroscientific endeavour. My main other interests and hobbies include food, coffee and playing the Oud (middle-eastern lute).
