I am a senior research scientist at Bloomberg AI. Prior to that, I obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science from École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland. At EPFL, I worked in the Distributed Computing Lab (DCL) under the supervision of Prof. Rachid Guerraoui. My research interests include distributed machine learning, communication efficiency, and fault tolerance. In particular, I am interested in building scalable and trustworthy distributed machine learning systems.
Prior to joining EPFL, I received my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree from Alexandria University in Egypt in July 2014 and January 2017 respectively. I graduated with “Distinction with Honor”, and I ranked first in my class. Back then, I worked as a Research Assistant at the Computer and Systems Engineering Department, Alexandria University, Egypt under the supervision of Prof. Moustafa Youssef and Prof. Mustafa ElNainay.
