Fisal Alaqil


I am a PhD researcher who joined the School of Media and Communication in November 2015. I hold a BA in Media and Public Relation from King Saud University (KSU), Saudi Arabia (2003), and an MA in Public Relation from KSU (2008). Fisal’s PhD is on the use of statistics by financial journalists in the Arabian Gulf. I am supervised by Dr Jairo Lugo-Ocando and Dr Georgios Aivaliotis. I am a member of the School’s Journalism Research Group. Before starting my PhD, I worked as a lecturer in the Department of Mass Communication at KSU. I have also worked as Advertising Planning Officer at Saudi Research and Marketing Group.
