Associate Professor, Laurentian University's McEwen School of Architecture
Associate Professor Tammy Gaber’s background in architecture comes from her undergraduate studies at the University of Waterloo (BES and B.Arch.), her graduate work at Cairo University (M.Sc. in architectural engineering and PhD in architectural engineering), and her participation in the design of various projects in both Canada and Egypt. Professor Gaber has taught design studio, culture, and building courses at different universities during the past 15 years, including the American University in Cairo, the British University in Egypt, Misr International University, and the University of Waterloo. Professor Gaber has published articles in journals and conferences as well as book chapters related to Islamic architecture, vernacular design and architecture pedagogy. Her current project, documenting the history, architecture, and space for women in Canadian mosques is the first extensive study of its kind and is supported by a grant from the Social Sciences Humanities Research Council of Canada. In 2019, Professor Gaber was awarded one of the Canadian Council for Muslim Women's awards for 'Women Who Inspire.'
