I joined Birkbeck College, University of London in 2017 as a Wellcome ISSF Research Fellow in philosophy and psychiatry. Before that I was Junior Research Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies at University College London (2015-2016), and Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Division of Philosophy and Ethics of Mental Health, University of Pretoria, South Africa (2013-2015).

I studied medicine at Cairo University Medical School, then trained in psychiatry in London on the Guy's, King's College, and St. Thomas' Hospitals training scheme. I read philosophy at King's College London while completing my core training in psychiatry. After this I moved on to full time research, gaining my PhD from University College London in 2012.

I teach at King's College London on the MA Philosophy of Medicine and Psychiatry on the module the Concept of Mental Disorder.
