Born September 1984 in Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). Eight months later, my family moved to Jeddah, where I lived til the fall of 2013 to pursue my higher education (PhD) in Britain.
I’ve been on the move since, between U.K and K.S.A till I complete my PhD – in God’s willing (as we say in Arabic: in shaa Allah). On the 1st of May 2019, I passed my PhD viva, I am now back home (Saudi Arabia, Jeddah) to start a new chapter in my life.
I chose social science as my path in high school*, then my beloved field: sociology, as the major for my bachelor’s and M.A. I always knew that applied science (e.g., math, physics) is not my cup of tea.Today, although my PhD is not ‘directly’ under the department of sociology (media and communication). Yet, as Zygmunt Bauman once said: “Sociology is the queen of science” (Network, Magazine of the British Sociological Association, Spring 2017,p.32), I consider what I’m doing as Digital sociology, to draw a line between social media platforms as technologies, and sociology: the practices of human-beings on these spaces!

(*) In Saudi Arabia we choose between two paths by the end of the 1st year of high school, science (3elmi) or social and humanities (Adabi, as from literature)
