I received my PhD in Classics and Ancient History from the University of Manchester (2017), where I worked on the ERC funded Arabic Commentaries on the Hippocratic Aphorisms
project. Previously, I studied Middle East Studies
at the American University in Cairo (MA 2014). I obtained two bachelors from Leiden University, Netherlands, in Arabic Language and Culture (2011), and Hebrew & Aramaic Languages and Cultures (2011).
