I am an architect and BioGeometry® practitioner. My expertise is in zero emission and passive earth buildings. Worked for the last 17 years in the field of sustainable architectural conservation, environmental design and energy efficient buildings. I received my bachelor degree in architecture in 2001 from Egypt then earned a master degree in environmental planning and design in 2006 and a PhD in conservation of vernacular architecture in 2011 from Lund University in Sweden. Mainly I tend to apply transdisciplinary approaches in my research work following a human centred participatory design methods. I received the Swedish Elna Bengtssons foundation prize for scientific research in 2012 for my PhD project. Published several manuscripts and two books beside lecturing in the fields of energy efficient buildings, sustainable conservation, environmental design, vernacular architecture and BioGeometry®. As a practitioner, I participated in several design projects in Egypt, MENA region and Europe. Currently I am a Professor of environmental and sustainable architecture at Aalborg University in Denmark and Docent at Malmö University in Sweden. Currently working in a FORMAS funded project on climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies for people at the margins. My research focus is passive and carbon neutral low-tech vernacular methods and their adaptation for contemporary energy efficient and zero carbon building practice.Together with a continuation for the minus carbon and plus energy refugee shelters.
