Received the B.S degree from University of Baghdad, Baghdad, Iraq, in 2001 and the MSc degree from University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq, in 2005. Recently, She also received the PhD degree from Cardiff School of Engineering, Cardiff
University, United Kingdom, in 2018. From 2005 to 2010, she was a Lecturer Assistant and then a Lecturer in 2011 in the
department of Building and Construction Engineering in University of Diyala. In 2012, she travelled to the United Kingdom to finish her PhD in the department of Architectural, Civil & Environmental Engineering, and the research theme: Energy
and Environment and within the research group: The Building Research Establishment (BRE) Trust Centre in Sustainable Engineering, School of Engineering, Cardiff University. Her research interests are in the areas of
photogrammetric processing and information extraction from Airborne and Spaceborne images, image processing and computer vision with applications to remote sensing, GIS for Renewable Energy and urban sustainability applications. She participated and attended several international conferences in the different countries and her publications in the various journals and conference proceedings. She has been awarded many certificates in the different events, courses and workshops.
