Graduated from the University of Al-Fateh, Tripoli Libya in the academic year 1993/94 with a BSc in Zoology. I obtained a Masters from the same University in the Department of Zoology in the spring of 2002, on migratory and resident marine birds in Ras-Attalgha and the western part of Farwa Island, Libya.
