About me

I am an assistant professor and the head of the Quality and Assurance Department in the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Benghazi in Libya. I am also a board member of the University of Benghazi’s Research Centre. My main research interests are in the field of electrical power engineering with a focus on power transmission lines, grounding and earthing, voltage mitigation systems, and lightning protection. AGYA provides a platform for developing and implementing interdisciplinary research at an international level, which is highly beneficial for society. As a member of AGYA, I will not only contribute to projects related to my discipline, but also explore my passion for working with colleagues from other disciplines. I will also work to enhance research cooperation between Libyan, German, and Arab universities for the benefit of all parties.

My motivation to join AGYA is to work in interdisciplinary research groups, to network with distinguished researchers from Germany and the Arab world, and to find collaboration opportunities between Libyan and German institutes of higher education.
