About Me

I'm from Cairo, Egypt, and recently graduated from NYU Abu Dhabi with a BS in Computer Science and minors in Political Science, Interactive Media, and Music Computing.

Recently, I've been spending the most time building websites and doing research that uses computer science skills to aid different fields (Political Science, Psychology). I want to research social media and political participation, and am an incoming Digital Analyst at a consulting firm.

I wrangle (Mozilla Speak for volunteer organizer) for MozFest, am on the youth jury for the World Summit Awards, and used to direct an international educational robotics conference (more about that under Projects) and an online MUN program.

I love playing football (soccer), watching and studying films, making playlists, sketching, and reading. Unique hobbies...
