I’m currently open to new opportunities

Biography

I am a highly motivated researcher with the eager to always learn more and build a successful career. I am passionate about algorithm design, applied deep learning and artificial intelligence for visual computing. I am keen to make a real impact in the world. I am an autonomous and self-motivated person. In fact, I often take the lead and start projects on my own because I enjoy it. Compared to most people my age, I have more self-discipline and more willingness to try and learn new things, something I think it is proven by my projects and research record so far. I have received my CPGE diploma of Mathematics/Physics (with honors) in 2016 from l'Institut Préparatoire aux Etudes d'Ingénieur de Sfax. After that, I received the Diplome d’Ingenieur degree (summa cum laude) in telecommunication engineering from the Ecole Superieure des Communications de Tunis (SUP’COM), Tunis, Tunisia, in 2019. I am currently a M.Sc. Graduate student affiliated with the Innovative Technologies Laboratories (ITL) under the supervision of Prof. Yehia Massoud at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). During the period form 2019 to 2021, I worked as a Junior research scientist with the School of Systems and Enterprises at Stevens Institute of Technology, NJ, USA.

Research Interests

Artifical Intelligence, Deep Learning for visual computing, Optimization, Low-complexity algorithm design, Computer Vision, and Social Internet-of-Things.
