2021 Day 234 Task – Second Assessment for PhD Student – Mustaffa Jawad

Today, after quite some time not becoming an academic evaluator or examiner, I became one. This time I became the second assessment evaluator for an Iraqi PhD student, Mustafa Jawad under the supervision of Dr. Hajar Alias and Dr. Muhammad Tahir. It was a fruitful session especially for the students as I inquired several important questions that is useful for Mustafa’s research and thesis.

The session commenced at 2.30pm and ended slightly after 4pm. It was definitely morning time zone in Iraq for Mustafa. The unique aspect about Mustafa’s research is that he is doing an experiment and he set up his experiment in his house in Iraq in view of the pandemic.
