I graduated with a B.Sc. in Biology from Mosul University/Education College in 1991–1992, and I also earned an M.Sc. in Botany there in 2008. Since 2009, I have worked as an assistant lecturer at Erbil Polytechnic University/ Khabat Technical Institute. In December 2022, I obtained my PhD from the Biology Department of Science College/Salahaddin University-Erbil. At Khabat Technical Institute, I am currently teaching in the Department of Food Security and Public Health.
