I hold a PhD in Physics (Experimental Atomic Physics/Accelerator-Based) since January 2010 from The University of Jordan (UJ). During my PhD research, under the supervision of Dr. Dia-Eddin Arafah and Dr. Rami M. Ali, I designed and built the  Coincident Rutherford Backscattering Spectrometry (CRBS) apparatus at the University of Jordan Van de Graaff Accelerator (JUVAC) facility. At that time, my PhD dissertation was nominated as the best dissertation in the scientific field.​

During my PhD study, I worked at UJ's Department of Physics as a part-time lecturer (2002-2010). It was a great experience to learn and teach physics simultaneously at the same place.

I  joined  King Abdulaziz University (Rabigh Branch) in Saudi Arabia in October 2010 as an Assistant Professor of Physics, and served as Head of Physics for Rabigh-College of Sciences and Arts (Females Branch) for two academic years (2011-2013).

I  have been working at UJ's School of Science as an Assistant Professor of Atomic and Molecular Physics since September 2013. I am very pleased that I returned back to my home university. I am always looking very much forward to being positively involved in its success and progress in all fields.

Besides teaching and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate students, I am a Principal Researcher of ion-beam analysis (IBA) techniques at JUVAC facility. I have received several research funding grants from various international bodies such as ICTP (Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics) and IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) to carry out my research in Jordan and abroad.

During the last few years, I have been honored to join Elettra Sincrotrone Trieste in Italy as a Research Fellow (funded by ICTP) during summer semesters of 2015-2017. Most recently, I have been awarded a one-year ICTP TRIL fellowship at Elettra started on September 1, 2018. I belong to the Atomic and Molecular Physics Group of Elettra's GasPhase Photoemission beamline, mainly  interested in electron spectroscopy and fragmentation mechanisms of small gas phase molecules using synchrotron light.
