Selma Al Makzomy

One of the visiting scholars recently hosted by AUS is Selma Al Makzomy who was previously an AUS student! Selma is here at AUS as a research assistant to Dr. Mark Aveyard. She is based in the Psychology Laboratory at the Department of International Studies. 


“I have lived in the UAE before moving to the Netherlands, in fact, AUS is my alma mater. Hence, when I had the opportunity to come back to AUS as a Visiting Scholar to be a research assistant I was happy to come back.”

She is based in the Psychology Laboratory at the Department of International Studies. 

Her independent research is about mindfulness, positive psychology and well-being. She is currently working on publishing her master thesis titled Mindfulness vs. Positive Psychology: The Impact of the Two Interventions on Positive Emotions and Being Mindful, which identifies the benefits of Mindfulness intervention and Positive Psychology intervention in overall well-being, positive emotions and enhancing mental health among UAE residents.
