I am Dlzar D. Ghafoor, an accomplished researcher and academician with expertise in Protein Crystallography and Enzymology. I hold a Ph.D. degree in Protein Crystallography and an M.Sc. degree in Enzymology, both of which were obtained from the prestigious University of Sulaimani, College of Science, Chemistry Department.
Currently, I am employed as a full-time faculty member at Komar University of Science and Technology, where I actively contribute to the growth and development of the institution's academic programs. Since 2017, I have had the honor of serving as the Chairperson of the MLS (Medical Laboratory Sciences) department, overseeing its operations and leading a team of dedicated faculty members.
Throughout my academic journey, I have been involved in extensive research, focusing on the elucidation of protein structures using crystallography techniques and exploring the mechanisms of enzymatic reactions. My work has been published in reputable scientific journals, contributing to the advancement of knowledge in the field.
In addition to my research and teaching responsibilities, I am passionate about mentoring and guiding aspiring scientists.
With a strong commitment to excellence in education and research, I strive to inspire and nurture the next generation of scientific minds. I am dedicated to fostering an environment of intellectual growth, innovation, and collaboration within the MLS department, and I am driven to make a positive impact on the scientific community and society as a whole.
In my academic philosophy, I firmly believe that teaching is not only a responsibility but also a privilege to educate and serve students at the highest level. I am dedicated to creating an inclusive and supportive learning environment where all students have equal opportunities to thrive and succeed.
I strongly oppose any form of discrimination and believe that every individual should be treated with respect and fairness. It is essential to foster a diverse and inclusive atmosphere where students feel valued, accepted, and empowered to express their thoughts and ideas freely.
I firmly believe in student-centered learning, placing the student at the core of the educational process. By tailoring teaching methods, curriculum, and assessments to meet the diverse needs and learning styles of students, we can ensure their active engagement and promote their intellectual growth.
As instructors, we are not only disseminators of knowledge but also catalysts for learning. It is our responsibility to create a stimulating and inspiring environment that encourages critical thinking, fosters creativity, and nurtures a passion for lifelong learning. By serving as mentors and guides, we can help students develop their full potential and become independent, self-directed learners.
I recognize the power and influence that instructors possess, not only in the classroom but also in society as a whole. I am committed to utilizing this power responsibly and ethically, striving to instill values of integrity, empathy, and social responsibility in my students. By promoting values of tolerance, understanding, and respect, we can contribute to building a harmonious and peaceful society.
