I am associate professor at the faculty of economics and political sciences of the University of Tripoli, where I teach macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, history of economic thought, economic development and economic modelling. I earned a PhD from the Research Institute for the Built and Human Environment of the University of Salford, with a thesis on the internal layout design of social housing in Libya: a cultural value perspective. I also have an MSc in economic development, trade and finance from the Academy of Economic and Political Science in Tripoli, Libya, and a BSc in economic and business administration from the University of Tripoli (Alfateh). As a researcher, I have published twelve working papers, ten articles in local journals, and one book. I have also been a consultant for several international institutions and local councils.
