Honours and distinctions:
I am assistant professor in the department of plant science, University of Zawiya. Zawia, Libya. In 2006, I got my M.Sc. (Biological Science) from department of of biological science, Brock University. St. Catharines, ON Canada. In 2016 I got my PhD. (Agronomy) from the department of agronomy, Kansas State University, Manhattan KS USA. Subjects taught: I’ve taught general plant science, plant physiology, plant nutrition and principles of molecular biology courses for bachelor students. My areas of interest include: crop physiology, environmental stress, plant ecophysiology, plant water relations and plant nutrition. The main focus of my work is to carry out researches that help to understand how crop plants respond and deal with environmental stress. My goals of doing researches include my desire to contribute in solving world’s biggest challenge “feeding the world”. In Libya farming is main income for many families. Crops in Libya are exposed to heat, drought, cold and salinity stresses causing reduction in crops yield and quality. My research interests include investigations into biotic and abiotic stresses that crops encounter at different stages of plant growth and development. Research areas include: Salinity stress. drought stress. plant nutrition and plant water relations. As a researcher I ‘ve published 15 journal and conference papers.
