Mariem's research focuses on the participation of the Arab members of the World Trade Organization in both the negotiations and dispute settlement processes of the WTO. Her research looks to understand the reasons behind the limited participation of Arab members in the WTO thus far, as well as the trend to engage in coalitions as a possible trade strategy. The research topic encompasses the trade activities of Arab WTO members outside the organisation, in particular bilateral and regional  trade agreements.  

Mariem's primary supervisor is Professor David Collins. Her external supervisors include Professor Peter Kunzlik, Dr. Bashar Malkawi, and Dr. Fawaz Al-Alamy.

Mariem holds a 'Licence en Droit' from the Université Paris 1, Panthéon-Sorbonne, and an LLM in International Commercial Law from City University of London.  She has interned at Gide Loyrette and Nouel (Paris), Ince & Co. (London), and Al Tamimi & Co. (Dubai), as an undergraduate law student.

As part of her PhD, she taught Constitutional and Administrative Law to Undergraduate students for two years, as well as WTO law to both undergraduate and graduate students.
