During his employment with Bright Star university, he worked as a General Registrar ( Head of the admission office for undergraduate students). 

Research interests

The research project title is ( Investigating corrosion under insulation (CUI) mechanisms by using microelectrodes)

The CUI is considered a serious threat to the oil and gas sector. The failure in the pipeline in the O&G  due to CUI is estimated at 40-60%. 

The aims of this research are:

  • To investigate the mechanism of CUI by using three cell microelectrodes.
  • To investigate the effect of different environmental condition on CUI rate ( temperature – cyclic temperature – insulation saturation)   
  • To study the corrosion products that formed at different conditions



  • MSc- Oilfield Corrosion, 2014 University of Leeds- UK
  • BSc. Mechanical Engineering, 2009 University of Benghazi- Libya
