After finishing high-school in my motherland Palestine,I obtained my BS & Master in Microbiology from Grenoble University in France, country of my second citizenship. During 4 years,I worked in Pr.Geiselmann’s Lab on the RpoS-Crl regulon & the lifestyle switch between adhesion & motility.I joined Pr.Martin’s Lab as a PhD Student in September 2011. I study cell-cell fusion in S. pombe. I’m interested in the decision making process in unicellular organisms during evolution. In Parallel, i've been involved in the creation of Karmagenes: I'm the CSO of the company and also take care of public relations.
