Research Interests

My interest in applying my knowledge of physics of radiation, radiation detection and measurements in oil and gas, medical imaging techniques, health physics and image processing that began through a PhD scholarship at Cardiff University, which I was granted from University of Tripoli. I joined Cardiff University between 2014-2018, where I developed a system for detecting the calcification in the abdominal aorta at the early stage based on the validated vertebral fracture assessment test (VFA). The results of this research were published in high-impact scientific conferences and under revision for journals. In addition to this and as a part of my study, I have worked at Cardiff University Hospital to investigate the performance of the Hologic dual energy x-ray absorptiometry in the detection of abdominal aortic calcification using a phantom which was designed for this purpose.

Currently, my concern is about many national issues, in which the most important are the radiation risk and increasing the tumor cases due to the misuse of several applications of radiation in my country.

I worked in the Radiation Measurements Center with my colleagues to investigate the radiation exposure within the medical centers as well as in oil industry. In addition, I have been nominated as radiation protection officer by the IAEA since 2006 at the University of Tripoli.
