I got my BS and the first MS in physics from the University of Tripoli. I came to the University of Kentucky for my graduate school and finished my PhD in Experimental Condensed Matter Physics under the supervision of Dr. Gang Cao and Dr. Lance DeLong.

Teaching Interests

Introductory and upper-level physics courses. Interested in applying the learner-centered approach pedagogy to finding an interactive/productive/collaborative learning environment.<br>Experience with e-learning resources and online/hybrid course development.

Research Interests

My current research focuses on synthesis and study of semiconductive polymers for energy harvesting/conversion applications; conjugated polymers in the form of organic/organic-inorganic thin-film semiconductor materials. For this work, we apply several spectroscopic, thermodynamic, and electronic techniques to characterize such materials.
