Over 25 years experience of leading scientific research spanning different fields of molecular sciences (biochemistry, molecular biology), particularly in relation to: Hazard characterisation, risk assessment, and regulatory aspects of chemicals and nanomaterials. experience in scientific R&D into safety of chemical substances and nanomaterials in consumer products to human health and the environment. Received my PhD in Molecular biology School of Science and Engineering, Teesside University ,UK 2013. I was a postdoctoral fellow and students director working to investigate the migration of nanomaterial in food matrices by ICP-MS techniques. Contributed in many local and international conferences around the world. MSc in Food and consumer Safety, Teesside University, UK and involved in many projects in consumers complains and food premises inspections. HACCP, CCP, GMP and regulations to comply with EU standards and international standards. I had my BSc in Food Science Tripoli University Libya1989 and I was a senior research in Tajura Nuclear Research Centre (TNRC), Libya 1989 -1996 working in the application of Nuclear techniques in Food supported by International Atomic Energy Agency IAEA) and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). I am a consultant in Libyan National Centre for Standardisation and Metrology (LNCSM) since 2007 and a researcher with Health Unit Kingston Ontario, Canada.
