Ameera has joined the University of Borås in mid February 2012 as a doctoral student. She is also a member of The Linnaeus Centre for Research on Learning, Interaction and Mediated Communication in Contemporary Society (LinCS). Her research interest is focused on understanding and exploring the evolution of information literacies and practices, resulting from the current phenomenon of social media. The main focus here is to examine the evolution of new forms of information literacies and learning ecologies associated with social media tools, including the way people use these media to create, access, shape and share information.

Ameera has a Master of Science degree from Linnaeus University, School of Computer Science Physics and Mathematics, Vaxjo-Sweden. The main focus of her master studies was on understanding the relationship between organizations, people, and technology. Her master thesis was based on an exploratory case study in an attempt to explore and understand the role of Learning Management Systems (LMSs) in educational environments from students' and teachers' perspectives.  She also holds a Bachelor degree from Najah National University, School of Computer and Information Science, Palestine.
