Besides teaching an award-winning course for master students at the Technische Universität Berlin, I have given numerous trainings, talks, workshops, coaching sessions, and seminars on many topics: ranging from the basic sciences to sustainable entrepreneurship, artificial intelligence & society, cognitive dissonances, finding purpose, and scientific research methods. I have also worked in education and training management.

Shall we take a little tour?

Speaking Engagements

From conference presentations, to live interviews, to panel discussions, even an invite to do a TEDx talk and a podcast episode, I have had the pleasure of communicating some of my knowledge to the public in several occasions. Here are some examples.

"Honestly the best class in the master degree I had so far. I am fascinated by your aura, openmindedness, honesty, critical thinking and the unique atmosphere you created in this course."

"Thank you for being very empathetic and sensible. You always handled situations well."

"I just I love the presentations and hearing so much about topics that I would otherwise not have had the chance to discover. Thank you so much for organizing the class - we all really enjoy being there!"

"Amazing class, very engaging with a good topic and nice atmosphere. I particularly love how she links the content with theories from
social sciences, sociology and biology."

"Thank you very much for bringing a very unique perspective and having a unique way of teaching. You create a very intimate atmosphere in which everyone feels comfortable and able to share even personal things. This is never happened to me in my whole student career but I am very fond of this style."

"The presentations were really interesting. For the first time in my educational history I was looking forward to another course session."

"Ich fand den Kurs wirklich extrem toll strukturiert und gegliedert, repräsentiert wirklich genau das was ich mir vorgestellt habe [...] und es dementsprechend meines Erachtens der beste Kurs den ich an der TU bisher hatte (in 8 Semestern
Bachelor + Master)."

"I really liked the course, the deliverables, the slightly different approach to teaching an university course. Learnt a lot and really liked the atmosphere. Very professional moderation in challenging situations."

"You are definitely the most awesome person I came across in 2022. You just inspire me by being you."

After having given periodic workshops and training sessions for different universities and non-profit training centers, including I.S.I. e.V. in Berlin, Neoma Business School in France, and my alma mater Georgia Tech, I finally now teach a full master-level course at the Technische Universität Berlin which I designed from scratch.


The course is called "Entrepreneurship & Innovation in Challenging Global Contexts", where I combine theories from psychology, ecology, and economics to create reflection spaces on sustainability and the future of work amidst various crises. I won't say much more about it, but I will let the student testimonials

speak for themselves.


At the faculty's (bi)annual award ceremony in November 2023, where I won the the best teacher award based on student nominations and testimonials as well as academic Jury selection. 

Training Management

I also worked as a project manager and training coordinator with SE Factory, a highly successful Lebanese coding bootcamp (2016), as well as for the first round of the soulincubator, a startup support program focused on the plastic waste reduction, with soulproducts GmbH in Berlin (2020).
