I hold a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wassit where I studied Biology and a master’s in Microbiology from Plymouth University. While I was doing my master, I gained British academic experience from working as a Research Assistant and Lab Demonstrator. I have also achieved the status of Associate Fellow of the British Higher Education Academy.
My research interest includes food-borne pathogens and antibacterial properties of herbs. My current research project in Rob Kingsley’s group involves the isolation of Salmonella strains from food and the use of whole genome sequencing.
