She got her Bachelor degree in Agriculture in 1999 and taught laboratory sessions of Entomology and insect physiology courses. In 2005 she received a scholarship from the Libyan ministry of higher education and research to pursue graduate studies in Entomology in Canada. In 2008 she obtained her M.Sc. degree. During her master's research she tested plant essential oils to develop a more bee-friendly treatment against the parasitic mite Varroa destructor. During her master's program she received Awards of Excellence. In 2010 she received her second scholarship from the Libyan ministry of higher education and research to pursue PhD studies at the University of Guelph. Her research has focused on the effect of acaricides on honeybee behaviour, immunity and learning ability.
