Marzouk, M. (2016). Rooftops from Wasted to Scarce Resource; The Competition between Harvesting Crops and Solar Energy in Nasr City, Cairo. MSc. thesis. IUSD Program. Under joint supervision of Mohamed Salheen, Antje Stokman and Ahmed Atef Faggal, Ain Shams University and Stuttgart University.

Mai has received her B.Sc. degree in 2013 from the Department of Architecture at Ain Shams University in Cairo. In 2016, she obtained her Master’s degree from the University of Stuttgart and Ain Shams University (IUSD program). She is an Assistant Lecturer in the Department of Architecture at Ain Shams University and the IUSD-Cairo program.

During her Master’s studies, Mai has developed an interest in the transformation of buildings and the built environment to become more efficient and productive through a multi-disciplinary, multi-objective approach. Since 2017, she has been working as a part-time project coordinator and senior researcher in international research and development projects funded by the German BMUB with special focus on promoting energy efficient buildings and CO2 emissions reduction in the built environment.

She joined the Institute of Meteorology, Urban Climatology Lab in Freie Universität Berlin as a guest researcher in summer 2017, being trained on energy modelling and simulation tools. In summer 2018, she received a Fulbright scholarship to become a visiting scholar and lecturer in Texas A&M University in the US as part of the JFDP program. In addition, she has attended a number of workshops and training programs on topics related to sustainable building design, building ecology, economics of energy efficiency, building integrated agriculture and energy generation in buildings in UK, Jordan, Lebanon and Egypt.

Since 2020, Mai has joined the Institute of Landscape Planning and Ecology ILPOE as a PhD candidate focusing on the field of productive buildings and analyzing the potentials of building-integrated energy and food generation systems in the context of hot-arid climates (e.g. Cairo, Egypt).
