I’m originally From Iraq. I was a staff member at the Dept. of Translation, University of Basra where I taught for more than 10 years before I got a scholarship to complete my study. Now, I’m a third year PhD student at Queen’s. My thesis title is ‘Investigating the Manipulation of Ideology in the Simultaneous Interpreting of Political Discourse’. Beside my interest in translation and interpreting, I’m fond of discourse analysis, contrastive grammar, semantics, pragmatics, stylistics as well as sociolinguistics. Below is a list of published research papers that I have authored (or co-authored).
