I am a PhD student at Boston University’s Department of Computer Science. I am interested in cryptography and intersecting topics from quantum computing, complexity theory, and number theory.
In June 2019, I graduated with a BSc summa cum laude from the American University in Cairo (AUC), Egypt where I studied mathematics and computer engineering. Previously, I interned with Microsoft Research, Affectiva, Twitter, EPFL, and IPAM at UCLA.
