I am an Associate Professor at the College of Education and the Director of the Humanities Research Center at Sultan Qaboos University in Oman. I work in the fields of health and physical education. One focus of my research is investigating the effects of different types of aerobics exercise on total cholesterol levels. I also analyse the effectiveness of a specific kids training program for developing physical and perceptual skills.
AGYA offers me the opportunity to research in collaboration with scholars from different countries and disciplines.
I appreciate the professional development events such as workshops and conferences run by AGYA, which present excellent occasions for mutual exchange.
