What’s your background in the business sector?

I worked as researcher in the central bank of Libya.

I like teaching because while I teach, I learn from my students as we discuss the subject. Also, I like to transfer my knowledge to the student and, eventually, to society.

What is your favourite thing about teaching postgraduate students?

Connecting the teaching material with real life. I am always relating my teaching with examples from the real world. For a postgraduate student, I always apply a research-oriented teaching approach.
