I am a PhD candidate in Electrical and Computer Engineering, advised by Professor Alexander G. Schwing. In my thesis, I am developing methods for scalable inference and learning for structured prediction in computer vision. Previously, I have also worked on systems and healthcare analytics.
I graduated with Bachelor and Master degrees in Electrical engineering and Information technology from the Technical University of Munich. I also obtained a Master degree in Computer engineering from Virginia Polytechnic and State University, advised by Professor Sandeep Shukla. I was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley, where I worked on my master thesis under the supervision of Professor Alberto Sangiovanni Vincentelli and Professor Andreas Herkersdorf.

I am very curious, enjoy learning new skills and exploring new ideas, art, cultures and food. I speak four languages fluently: Arabic, French, German (FSP 1.0) and English. As a teenager, I did a lot of ceramics, silk, glass and oil painting. Later on, I found joy in computer vision research. I also play piano and enjoy reading and traveling.
