A native of Aleppo, Syria. I hold a bachelor degree from the University of Aleppo, Syria and master degree from the University of Melbourne, Australia. I am currently working as Lead Software Engineer at Microsoft Research Center for Social Natural User Interfaces (SocialNUI), at the University of Melbourne.
At Microsoft SocialNUI I build cool technologies, bridging the gap between humans and computers, animals and computers, and humans and animals. I manage SocialNUI Lab and oversee all software development in the center.
Before joining Microsoft SocialNUI I used to work as AI Research Team Leader at IDscan Biometrics LTD, where we strove to make the world safe place. At IDscan we did the hard work of authenticating people IDs and passports and detecting identity frauds.
Off the digital grid, I enjoy spending quality time with family and friends. I like to take photos using my Nikon d5500 and I am also a fan of Sci-Fi and action movies.
