Dr. Marwa Qaraqe received her PhD and Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas, USA in May 2016 and August 2012, respectively. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University at Qatar in May 2010. Currently, Dr. Qaraqe is an Assistant Professor at Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Doha, Qatar.
Dr. Qaraqe’s current research interests lie in the area of early seizure onset detection using EEG and ECG signals. In particular, she exploits various signal processing and machine learning algorithms in an attempt to detect the earliest signs of electrographic epileptic seizures.
Throughout her academic career, Dr. Qaraqe received several awards. She was awarded first place in the Qatar Foundation Annual Research Forum in the Health and Biomedical Sector in November 2013. Throughout her PhD career, Dr. Qaraqe was awarded several Al-Thanaa awards from Qatar Foundation for her high academics and excellence in research. She was also the recipient of the Richard E. Wing Award for Excellence in Student Research in April 2012. During her master’s, Dr. Qaraqe was awarded Texas A&M University’s Diversity Fellowship. She also received three scholarships for High Academic Achievement from 2007-2010.
