Biography

I graduated from the University of Technology (Baghdad) in 1984 with a BSc in Systems and Control Engineering, and completed my MSc in Instrumentation and Control Engineering from the same university in 1988. I worked as a Instrumentation engineer before completing a PhD on Domain Oriented Object Reuse using Generic Software Architectures in 1997 from Liverpool John Moores University (UK). After completing my PhD I lectured at universities in the UK and the Middle East, and became a head of Computer Science at UAE University (Al-Ain).

Between 2000 and 2003, I worked as an Independent Software Engineer and Consultant. During this time, I worked on a number of projects around the world advising clients (nationally and internationally) on various aspects of the Software Development Process.

In December 2003, I joined the University of Salford as a Lecturer in Computer Network Systems and became Senior Lecturer in 2009. I am currently the programme leader for the MSc Software Engineering course.
