He his TEDx fellow and founder and director of the Palestinian Neuroscience Initiative at Al-Quds University, which aims to build infrastructure for research and train the next generation of Palestinian neuroscientists. His work is currently focused on deciphering the cognitive correlates of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)--a disease with a prevalence approaching 36 percent in Palestine--and the administration of antidepressants.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
