About me

I am Head of Quality and Assurance Department at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Benghazi in Libya. I obtained my Ph.D. in electrical engineering from University Technology Malaysia (UTM) in 2016. I got a Master degree from University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM). Currently, I am responsible for developing plans to enhance the quality of research projects. In addition, I am responsible for developing cooperation partnerships in the field of scientific research with international and local institutions. Furthermore, I am responsible for teaching engineering courses. As first Libyan member in the academy, I will not only contribute to projects related to my discipline, but to strengthening collaboration between Libyan, German and Arab universities for the benefit of all parties. AGYA provides a platform for developing and implementing interdisciplinary research at an international level which is highly desirable for the benefit of the society. My motivation to join AGYA is to work in interdisciplinary research groups, establishing a good network with distinguished researchers from Germany and the Arab world and to find collaboration opportunities between Libyan and German institutes of higher education.
