Personal profile

I am a dedicated and passionate part-time lecturer, with my journey in academia starting in 2022. My educational background is rooted in computer science, where I completed my Bachelor's degree at Al Albayet University in 2015. Building upon this foundation, I pursued a Master's degree in the same field, successfully earning my postgraduate qualification in 2019 from the same esteemed institution.

Currently, I am actively engaged in pursuing my Ph.D. at De Montfort University, with a primary research focus on Electronic Voting. This journey is a testament to my commitment to advancing knowledge and expertise in a field that is not only intellectually stimulating but also holds significant societal implications.

My academic pursuits are driven by a deep-seated curiosity and a desire to contribute meaningfully to the ever-evolving landscape of electronic voting systems. Through my research and teaching experiences, I aim to make a positive impact on both the academic community and the broader society by exploring innovative solutions to complex challenges in this domain.

I am enthusiastic about the potential of technology to transform the way we engage with democratic processes, and I look forward to furthering my contributions to this important field.
