  • Philosophy

    I enjoy working with students in the labs to learn all possible aspects of anatomy, histology, embryology and neuroanatomy. I believe that our students are better preparedin PBL curriculum.

    My enthusiasm for continuous learning and researching in anatomy/histology will be reflected on the stimulation of my students' ability to learn anatomy/histology and begin to integrate their knowledge to other disciplines as well as to clinical cases presented to them.

    I have developed appreciation and understanding of species diversity including camels, Llama, avian and laboratory animals and tailored my knowledge to different needs of DVM students and students in other disciplines.

  • Research Interest

    I am interestedto studythermoregulatory mechanism in different animal speciesthroughunderstanding of their blood vessels histoarchitecture.

    I also study the effect of certain pollutants on male and female genital systems.
