I am a lecturer in Journalism, English, and Communication, and a researcher in media, communications, and journalism.

My research broadly explores the intricacies of journalistic role performance, media practices, professional journalistic practices during crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and the societal context influencing professional journalistic practices, particularly within the Arab world and beyond.

As a principal investigator, I led Kuwait's participation in the second wave of the global journalistic role performance research project across 37 countries.

I have co-published several research papers with colleagues from Bournemouth University and international institutions, thus contributing significantly to the academic dialogue in these crucial domains.
