What is your current role? Tell us a bit about your work
I study medicine at the University of Khartoum and conduct research on general surgery and anesthesiology in Sudan. I also conduct research in the area of scholarly communications in east Africa. I am currently on the board of directors of FORCE11 and on the executive committee of SPARC Africa.
What are you excited about in science communication?
I am excited about the possibility of creating/improving science communication modes that facilitate knowledge sharing to enhance scientific discovery in medicine and health sciences. I am also excited about improving science communication infrastructure in Africa and encourage language diversity and endogenous knowledge sharing.
Why did you choose to participate in the ASAPbio Fellow program?
ASAPbio fellowship program is an excellent opportunity for me to expand my knowledge on preprints and connect with like-minded individuals. This would allow me to help expand the use of preprints across African countries and help develop the supportive infrastructure.
