Ph.D. in Mathematics Algebra | University of Galway, Ireland | 2023.

M.Sc. in Mathematics | Damascus University, Syria | 2010.


I hold a Ph.D. in Mathematics from Galway University Ireland, and a M.Sc. in Mathematics from Damascus University. I am a Fellow of the Advanced Higher Education Academy and a certified Specialist in Digital Teaching and Learning, as well as a Certified Blended Learning Practitioner. I am researching Algebra Group Theory, and Linear Algebra.

In 2020, I assumed the role of a course coordinator, and in 2023, I joined the College of Interdisciplinary Studies. Since joining Zayed University in 2015, I have dedicated myself to enhancing the student learning experience. I have developed student-centered materials, including e-books spanning mathematics and science, and designed a comprehensive Blackboard online course tailored for fundamental mathematics. Alongside teaching, I actively coordinate extracurricular activities and workshops, enriching the student experience.

As a dedicated mathematician and educator, I derive immense satisfaction from advancing my own knowledge and sharing it through teaching.
