Biography

As an undergraduate, I studied computer science at the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences, Ain Shams University in Egypt, where I obtained my bachelor degree. I became a teaching assistant for the same school in 2001 and did my masters there in active image authentication and watermarking, and in 2011, I obtained my PhD degree. My research investigated passive blind image forensics for tamper detection. A while later; after watching Big Hero 6, I started researching the use of human emotions in technology. My recent interests involve affective computing applications.
I moved to Scotland in January 2017 when I joined Abertay as a lecturer for the School of Design and Informatics (SDI).

Past: Introduction to Computers, Structured Programming, Object Oriented Programming, File Organization and Management, Programming in Logic (Prolog), Image Processing, Computer Vision, Game Design.

Currently: Application Design, Programming with C++, Artificial Intelligence.

I'm interested in computer vision, image processing and forensics, AI, and affective computing. Recently I've been investigating the use of affective commputing and human emotions in games.

I also supervised research in cloud computing, parallel computing, and augmented reality.
