  • I am currently working at Hawler Medical University/Dentistry College as a lecturer teaching Biology and Microbiology. I consider myself to be friendly, positive, and enthusiastic and a very reliable person. I usually enjoy team working, but also work very well independently and can be trusted to act responsibly under pressure.

  • I was working as researcher in Centre of Biomolecular Science/ Nottingham/UK 20011-2016. My main areas of expertise are in molecular microbiology; biotechnology; cellular microbiology, and bacterial vaccines.
