She got her B.Sc. in geology from the Department of Geology, College of Science, Salahaddin University, Iraq. Then she employed at the same department since 2003 as teaching assistant. She got her M.Sc. degree in Geophysics from the same department on 2010  and still working in the same place. She has promoted to the lecturer degree sincs 2018. She taught many courses including environmental geology, crystallography, rock-forming minerals, clay mineralogy, industrial geology, hydrology, electrical resistivity method and geophysics. Her primary interests are in applied geophysics, Electrical resistivity,  Electrical Resistivity Tomography (ERT), ERT Data  processing, Environmental geophysics and Engineering geophysics. 

She is looking forward writing article researches on geophysics as she published many papers in environmental and engineering geophysics.
