About Me

image description

I am a Computer Science Ph.D. student @ Rutgers University. I've come all the way from the land of the Pharaohs, the sacred sun and the never ending seas of golden sand - Egypt. There I did my undergraduate and masters degrees in computer science at the American University in Cairo.
