 I am Thuraya Salim Al-Harthy assistant professor in chemistry. I received my bachelor degree from Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) in Educational Science in Chemistry major and biology minor in 2009. One year later, I pursued my study in Chemistry Department, College of Science, at SQU, for Master degree and graduated in 2014.  After four years I owned my PhD in 2018 from the SQU in organic chemistry field. During my master and PhD study, I worked as teaching assistant in the Chemistry labs as a part of my scholarship duty which enriched me with experience in teaching and communicating with students.

In February 2018, I worked as a part-timer at A’Sharqiyah University (ASU) for one semester before I re-join ASU as full time as assistant professor in Basic Sciences Department in September 2018.

My research area of interest is in designing heterocyclic compounds that are expected to possess biological activities. During my work, several skeletons of heterocycles has been synthesized and developed e.g. benzoxazoles,  benzimidazoles, and benzothiazoles as core structures and combined with piperazine and fluorine moieties to evaluate their biological activities.
