I completed my Master’s degree in July 2013 at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, where I majored in Environmental Sciences with a special focus on waste management. I focused my research on the problem of solid waste management in Jordan. In addition to my Master’s degree certificate, I hold three additional educational certificates: Environmental Diplomatic Leader EDL Educational Program, Japan Global 30 Waste Management Expert Course, and International Collaborative Environmental Program (ICEP). All three were obtained from the University of Tsukuba.
