Bio/Research

I received my PhD in Educational Studies from McGill University in 2019 and my Master of International Development from the University of Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania) in 2004. Prior to joining Laurier, I had worked for several years with international development organizations and policy institutes, including Canada's International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Cairo, and the Brookings Institution and the World Bank Institute in Washington, DC. Prior to that, I had helped establish and lead a few community-based development organizations and social enterprises, including the Fat’het Kheir and Nahdet El Mahrousa NGOs in Cairo, Egypt. In 2004, I was elected an Ashoka fellow.

My research seeks to contribute to rendering curriculum and classroom practices more holistic and inclusive, especially of historically marginalized worldviews, epistemologies, wisdom traditions, narratives, and contributions. In the context of K-12 education, I focus on social studies and citizenship education as well as religious studies. In the context of higher education, my focus is largely on curricula and classroom practices related to social entrepreneurship, sustainability studies, and community development. My research mainly focuses on the Canadian and Egyptian contexts.
