Welcome to my personal page. I am a passionate doctoral candidate in physics at the University of Cincinnati, deeply engaged in the LHCb experiment at CERN. My research is at the forefront of flavor physics, with a particular focus on B meson physics. This work is pivotal in unraveling the mysteries of the universe’s most fundamental elements.

Prior to this, I earned my Master’s degree at the University of Minnesota, where I delved into the enigmatic domain of Magnetic Monopoles. This elusive particle, steeped in human curiosity since antiquity, remains a puzzle yet to be solved. My ambition is to edge us closer to its discovery. During my Master’s, I was also involved in the NOvA experiment at Fermilab, an esteemed center for scientific exploration. My experiences there have been nothing short of transformative.

My academic odyssey commenced at Zewail University in Egypt, which set the stage for my relocation to the US for advanced studies. At Fermilab, I had the privilege of working under the tutelage of Dr. Alec Habig, an eminent physicist and historian, whose mentorship enriched my understanding of both physics and global history. Currently, I am venturing into the realm of machine learning, recognizing its potential to revolutionize data analysis and address some of physics’ most challenging questions.

Beyond academia, my interests span across the rapidly evolving landscapes of machine learning, AI, and other cutting-edge technologies. The breakneck speed of innovation in these areas is not just enthralling; it also harbors the potential for monumental discoveries in our understanding of the cosmos. I actively engage in discussions and developments in these fields, contemplating their implications in physics and other scientific domains.

More about me:

  • Polyglot Programmer: Proficient in C++ and Python, I have a particular affinity for coding in CUDA for high-performance computing tasks. My contributions to open-source projects and the Python Foundation reflect my commitment to the development of these communities.

  • Global Scientist: Fluent in Arabic and English, I bring a multicultural perspective to my work. This bilingual ability not only enriches my research collaborations but also allows me to bridge scientific communities across continents.

  • Tech Enthusiast & Volunteer: When I’m not buried in datasets or algorithms, I’m often found exploring the latest in tech advancements or volunteering my skills for community-driven projects, particularly in educational or tech-based initiatives.

  • Lifelong Learner: I am constantly on the lookout for new knowledge and skills. Whether it’s a new programming language, a machine learning technique, or a historical perspective, I believe that continuous learning is the key to both personal and professional growth.

  • Future Goals: As I near the completion of my PhD, my sights are set on a career that blends data science and software engineering. My dream is to be at the forefront of technological innovation, leveraging my expertise in physics and computing to make impactful contributions.
