I am an Assistant professor teaching at Ahlia University and currently the chairperson of the department of Management Information Systems specialising in experimental design and implementation. I Enjoy teaching and conducting scientific experiments in web evaluation.
I am interested in human computer interactions (HCI) precisely user experience (UX) and momentary emotions. At the moment I am researching positive emotions in the online health care sector; how positive emotions shape online social interactions and what are the implications of positivity within the online health care sector.
I teach Business and Finance research methods. I work with senior students to develop research ideas through the use of creative and rational thinking; using brainstorming, relevance tree and other techniques. I aim to demonstrate statistical analysis using different tests, especially linear regressions, Anova, t-tests and correlations testing various hypotheses; using SPSS a statistics application to analyse the data gathered from experiments and questionnaires. I try to discover new journal articles with students by exploring the digital library sources of Ahlia University for example, search.ebscohost.com and also teaching core management information systems subjects. I enjoy learning managing enterprise systems- (ERP), e-commerce-, system analysis & design subjects with students.
