PhD title: Ethnographic Approach to Egyptian traditional sail boats. A study of contemporary maritime cultural material potential in terms of remaining traditional sailing boats, and traditional maritime cultural material, to reveal specific aspects of its maritime past. Thus, the idea of extensively recording and studying the surviving maritime cultural material record with a more thorough and systematic approach, was conceived.
This research will seek to understand what aspects of Egypt’s maritime and riverine culture survives in the traditional ethnographic record, and as a result it hopes to provide a better understanding of the impact of modernization on local traditions, and a clearer appreciation of some of the ancient.

PhD student funded by the Honor Frost Foundation. So far I completed two Masters degrees at the University of Southampton: an MSc in Archaeological Computing Spatial Technologies (2012-2013), thesis entitled ' The Beqa'a Valley during the Early Bronze Age: a GIS Approach to Settlement Patterns',  and an MA in Maritime Archaeology (2013-2014), 'Bronze Age and Iron Age Levantine Harbours: an Evaluation of their Afforded Maritime Accessibility and Protection'. During my Masters degrees I developed a set of skills and a passion for GIS, computational approaches, and marine geophysics. In my PhD research I will draw on several methods to investigate the maritime world of the Levantine Early Bronze Age through space and time. I worked on several archaeological digs and surveys, terrestrial and underwater ( Nissia Shipwreck Project 2014, Deltebre I shipwreck excavation 2014, Underwater survey in Anfeh Lebanon 2013, Excavation at Baalbek Lebanon 2012, excavation at Tell Fadous-Kfarabida Lebanon 2011, Tell el-Burak excavation 2011, etc.). Thanks to the support of the Honor Frost Foundation, The Said foundation, the British Lebanese Association, the University of Southampton Archaeology team, and my supervisors Dr Lucy blue and Dr Fraser Sturt, I was and still able to pursue my postgraduate studies.
