Biography:

2003-2004 B.Sc. study in Iraq/Erbil, University of Salahaddin/ Biology Dept., College of Education. 2009-2010 M.Sc. study under the title “Effect of Salicylic Acid on Some Biomass and Biochemical Changes of Drought-Stressed Wheat (Triticum aestivum L. Var. Cham 6) Seedlings” in Iraq/Kurdistan, Erbil, University of Salahaddin/ Biology Dept., College of Education.  2004- 2007, I helped teachers in labs as Biology Assistance teaching Biology students in Salahaddin Univ./ Education College/ Biology dept. 2010-2012, I taught biology students the subject of plant sciences including theoretical Botany, both theoretical and practical Plant Anatomy, as Assistance Lecturer in Iraq, Kurdistan, Soran University, College of Science, Biology Dept. My specialization is plant physiology of wheat plants. I am interested in researching crop stresses and Molecular biological analysis of plants.
