About me

I am a PhD student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at The University of Texas at Austin, advised by Prof. Milos Gligoric. I am interested in High Performance Computing and Software Engineering. I completed my undergraduate degree in the ECE department at The American University of Beirut in 2019.
