I have interest mostly on international security, terrorism, oil and energy studies.
I am also interested in conflict resolution. My MA dissertation was on settling the conflict in the so called Disputed Territories in Iraq.
I strive to make sure my students learn the fundamental contents of the courses I teach at different levels. I aim to foster critical thinking skills, to help students develop their academic skills through improving their writing skills, to prepare them to function as highly skilled and competent IR students and to prepare them for their future career. Furthermore, my overall teaching philosophy is based on active learning and participation at lectures, and assessments, procedure quizes, essays and exams.
