A passionate museum educator and experienced programme manager with extensive experience in the museum sector and international development organizations in the UK and across the Middle East. I developed and delivered a portfolio of pioneering learning and outreach programmes at the British Museum, Natural History Museum, Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, UNESCO, and Syria Trust for Development. Skilled in public engagement with science and heritage, community outreach and engagement, co-production of community projects, building collaborative partnerships within and outside the museum sector, working equitably with diverse audiences, and embedding ED&I in museum public programming. A strong advocate for the need to increase diversity within the UK museum sector, remove barriers of engagement with under-served communities across the UK, and to create a more inclusive and equitable narratives on history of science in museums. I founded “Multicultural Science: Inspiring Stories from the Islamic Civilization” to challenge a dominating Eurocentric view of science.”
