Dina is the senior producer of Common Ground. She started her journalism career in 2012 as a producer for NPR’s Cairo bureau covering the Arab Spring.

In 2014, she was awarded a fellowship position with the National Council on U.S.-Arab Relations in Washington D.C.,  where she got a taste of the think tank experience. Later, she was awarded the prestigious Chevening Scholarship and took off to the United Kingdom to earn a Master’s degree in digital film and TV production.

She moved to Berlin in 2017 as a broadcast journalist, before joining the KCRW Berlin team in 2020 to help launch the station’s flagship talk show.
