Researcher and TranslatorEmail:


I am originally from Baghdad, Iraq. I obtained my degree of Bachelor of Dental Surgery (BDS) from the University of Baghdad College of Dentistry in 2008 and moved to the United States as a refugee less than a year later. I have volunteered in multiple medical offices and research projects. The highlight of my research experience is when I worked for the department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Neurosciences in 2016. I am currently involved in the Stress Risk and Resilience in Syrian and Iraqi Refugees and Survivors of Torture research team. Away from work environment, I enjoy reading, music and sports..
