I’m interested in the patterns and process of Conservation medicine and population genetics of Arabian Oryx (Oryx Leucoryx). My research includes:
1- Genetic Diversity of Arabian Oryx using mtDNA.
2- Haematological parameters of Arabian Oryx.
3- Blood parasites of Arabian Oryx in ALWusta Wildlife Reserve Oman.
4- Population genetics of Arabian Oryx using ddRAD sequencing.
The overall objectives of this project are to investigate the genome-wide diversity, relatedness, population structure and health status of the captive Arabian oryx populations hold in the ALWusta Wildlife Reserve to develop a captive breeding management plan for this species.
