Dr. EL Mahi Abdulla El Nayer





Dr. El Mahi has been teaching English language, literature, and translation courses for over three decades, two of which have been here in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). More specifically, his teaching experience in the UAE has been confined exclusively to Ajman University (the former Abu Dhabi and Fujairah campuses) and Ajman University’s successor on the East Coast, the University of Science and Technology of Fujairah.

Dr. El Mahi has also been a rewarding experience. The positive interaction of a  diverse body of students, faculty, and staff  (local, regional, and international) has made it all the more worthwhile.

Dr. El Mahi Interests and contributions to research and service are aligned with his line of specialization and include, respectively, supervision of graduate theses and provision of external community required training.

This Profile cannot be complete without a special mention of Dr. El Mahi’s current university, USTF. A university that embodies the concept of diversity in unity can only be exhilarating, if somewhat challenging initially. Dr. El Mahi values the spirit of teamwork and the flavor of a shared university-wide experience as among the top thrills that this vibrant university campus abundantly provides.
