I have a big interest in understanding the mechanisms of growth and identification of different pathogens like; viruses, bacteria and mycoplasma using different techniques for diagnosis, identification and maintenance with emphasis on the characterization of the virulence factors involved and evaluating the potential of candidate vaccine antigens. My PhD was conducted in 2012 and entailed “Isolation and Characterization of viral nervous necrosis virus (VNNv) on newly established Marine cell line and its Pathogenicity in non-Marine Host”.

As a multidisciplinary researcher, I've been invited (with my husband; Dr. Majed H. Mohammed) to visit the School of Animal and Veterinary Science, University of Adelaide in 2018 to combine our several academic disciplines and professional specializations in an approach to work on MIC testing of many antimicrobial classes on BRD-Mycoplasma collection.

I joined Prof Dr. Darren Trott’s team at the Australian Center for Antimicrobial Resistance Ecology [ACARE] in September 2019, where my research focuses on assessments of antimicrobials to address the rising incidence of multi-drug resistant bacterial pathogens, and the preparation of Mycoplasma and other BRD-pathogen culture collections for whole genome sequencing analysis for vaccine preparation with a wide application in health, agriculture and food industries.

I carried out my postdoctoral work in Australia under Associate Professor Dr. Kiro Petroviski (School of Animal & Veterinary Science, The Univ. of Adelaide) from September 2019 to December 2020 on the longitudinal analysis of antimicrobial resistance of grain-fed cattle.

Currently, I am attempting to initiate a bio-bank research system to our bulk of Mycoplasma collection of isolates from various sources that may have animal health-related significance. Archiving the scientific results, the sequencing data, and other individual sources of data will increase competitiveness in research and promote scientific progress.

Throughout my research career, I have contributed significantly to the design and execution of research projects, international research grant applications and development of new technologies. I put my knowledge handy to supervise and mentor numerous DVM, MSc and co-advise PhD candidates, communicate and collaborate with national and international colleagues, researchers and postdoctoral fellows.

Day-to day research is my passion to achieve a mutual success in my career.

Teaching:

Currently, I am an academic researcher in the University of Adelaide, but I have the chance to be involved in tutorial activities for the DVM-1 students .  Also, I had the chance to teach the course of Virology to 3rd year Science, and the course of Aquaculture Diseases to 5th year Veterinary Medicine students in the University of Duhok/ Iraq from 2012- 2017. All this have allowed me to interact closely with students and colleagues, leading to exchange of ideas and problem solving as well as gaining familiarity with the system and opportunity to attract more students for research work.
