My Research Interests are:

Nuclear reaction theories and models: Optical model, Coupled channels, Glauber model, Eikonal approximation, Coulomb excitations, …

Structure and dynamics of exotic and halo nuclei.

Development of an energy-dependent microscopic optical potential.

Scattering, fusion, transfer, and Breakup of light exotic nuclei, dynamical polarization potential, dipole polarizability, dipole response function, …

My future research plans are:

Developing model of calculation for the Coulomb breakup for exotic projectiles. Including three-body formalism, core excitation, target excitation, transition between two bound states, calculating the dipole response functions, using new wave functions for the bound states, ...

Getting a global microscopic nucleon-nucleus and nucleus-nucleus optical potentials can describe well the real interaction between the nucleons and be used to analyze the nuclear reactions over a possible wider range of energy; predict the basic scattering observables for energies and nuclei for which no measurements exist; and reproduce fusion, Coulomb breakup, nuclear breakup, elastic scattering cross sections correctly at the same time.

My research was completely stopped in:

March 2015 to September 2018: because of the war and conflict in my country, Yemen. My story is featured in Nature 598, 527 ( 2021) and many websites.

September 2009 to the end of 2011: because of looking for jobs in 2009-2010 and arising the Arab Spring revolutions in the 2011.
