I am a computer scientist based at the Helmholtz Center Munich and the Technical University of Munich (TUM). I am the leader of an Artificial Intelligence Young Investigator Group at Helmholtz AI and a TUM Junior Fellow at the Faculty of Informatics and TUM School of Medicine. In the last few years, I have been leading a team of PhD students working on developing machine learning algorithms for clinical applications to mitigate the challenges in medical imaging. In the future, I will be working on developing innovative deep federated learning algorithms. My goal is to develop algorithms that are capable of distilling and sharing knowledge among AI agents in a robust and privacy-preserving way.
AGYA offers me incredible opportunities for interdisciplinary research collaboration.
These collaborations can help to improve the application of AI in healthcare. The bilateral exchange, joint workshops and capacity-building seminars help me to transfer my knowledge and develop affordable AI solutions for healthcare in Arab countries and Germany.
