Studying on a fully-funded Fulbright scholarship, I developed a strong
foundation in AI principles while focusing on Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing,
and Linguistics. I excelled in courses like Data Mining, Advanced Data Analytics,
Advanced Representation Learning, Text Corpus Analysis, and Philosophy of Language.
I did my thesis on Arabic Image Captioning with Attention which produced accuracy results that exceeded the state-of-the-art by using a transformer-based neural network architecture.
I Graduated with a GPA of 3.78, earning a master's degree in AI with great distinction.
During my Computer Science study, I developed a concrete understanding of
OOP, Software Engineering, Algorithms, Data Structures, Discrete Mathematics, Logic Design,
I was consistently at the top of my classes for all 8 semesters and graduated with a cumulative average of (87.18%), the highest in the history of the Department of Computer Science at the time of my graduation.
I've done many projects during my 4 years of study, such as a multi-level Space Shooter game complete with boss fights and leaderboards built with vanilla C#, a library system for e-books. A mini-compiler complete with lexical analysis and compilation to assembly code, and an extensive Education Management System built using Java for Android app, Swift for the iOS app, and NodeJS for the backend functionality.
