About me

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Science in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, where I direct the Machine Learning Laboratory.

My research is in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. My research focuses on building human-machine collaborative AI systems that can learn contextual and explainable models from multi-source and interconnected data.

Prior to joining Virginia Tech, I worked at the Palo Alto Research Center (aka Xerox PARC), where I led the machine learning research group, managed Procter & Gamble’s technical commercial portfolio, and spearheaded machine learning for sensors research.

I received my BE in Computer and Systems Engineering from Alexandria University, Egypt and my MS and PhD in Computer Science from Purdue University.
