Work ExperienceAs a principal investigator my project experience is involved in molecular characterisation of etiologic agents involved in economic diverse of desert animals (camels, goats, sheeps) and intensive farm avian (breeders, commercial layers and broilers). After molecular characterisation my research is focused on vaccinology to prepare adequate vaccines to protect against local strains such as Newcastle virus, Mycoplasma sp., infections bronchitis virus, salmonella, etc. Other works are focused on environmental microbiology studies of drinking water, and form litter used as soil conditioners. These works are directed towards sustainable resources in our environment.
