My research comprises fundamental and applied aspects on computational mathematics to solve practically relevant problems in scientific and visual computing. Among others, I pursue this aim at KAUST where I am holding faculty positions in Computer Science and Mathematics.
At KAUST, I am serving as the education lead in my subject area being involved in academic outreach activities in and beyond the Gulf region. This integrates seamlessly with AGYA’s values and vision, and contributes to and benefits from AGYA’s multilateral framework.
I see AGYA as a community encouraging a spirited exchange about the possibilities and challenges of the Arab-German dialogue and a framework allowing to design and implement new projects at the interface of education, science, and society. Consequently, it is an ideal environment for me to exchange and connect with other academics and at the same time working for an open, unbiased and meaningful dialogue between Germany and the Arab cultural circle.
