I am a lecturer in Graphic and Communication Design, contributing to the MA Design and the MA Advertising and Design.

My experience in academia as a lecturer and teaching assistant in graphic and communication design in higher education, both in Jordan and in the UK since 2016, alongside practical experience in the field being involved in branding projects in the UK, Ukraine and the Arab World, equipped me to develop critical, creative, and innovation skills.
