Layla was born in Libya and graduated from Tripoli University in 1994 with a BSc in Pharmacy. She then went on to work in community pharmacies before becoming a Demonstrator at Tripoli University. In 2009 Layla completed my Master's in Pharmaceutical Services & Medicine Control at the University of Bradford. Since then, she worked as an Assistant Lecturer before becoming a postgraduate research student here at Sheffield.
Layla's research focuses on wet granulation, one of the key techniques used within the pharmaceutical industry. The study uses a particle coating number to improve understanding of the distribution mechanism, during the nucleation stage of granulation. To achieve this, a fluidised bed granulator is being utilised.
