Maryam Samer AlKhateeb, received my PhD from Bournemouth University in 2015, from the department of Design Engineering and Computnig. My research looked upon the concept of privacy in the context of Saudi Arabia. Before that I did my Masters degree in Interior Design, from University of Brighton, and looked at the visual impact Arabic calligraphy had on the users of interoir spaces. Since I got my Bachlour degree, Interior Architecture from King Faisal Univeristy, I managed to work in academic and professional fields and persu my academic journey. My experiece in the academia provided me with knowledge applied when working in design offices. Also, the experience I had in the office influenced my research approaches and research interests. I have participated in conferences where I discussed my research and network with other reserachers.
