“My background is in business, but digitization and the online world has always been something that I've been interested in; how it has impacted lives, and the fact that we all rely heavily on technology in almost every facet of our lives, almost every minute of the day – that’s mind blowing for me.”

“My supervisor supported me throughout my PhD journey at HBKU and encouraged my interest in physical layer security for hybrid radio frequency/visible light communication.  The knowledge I gained during my graduate studies has pushed me one step closer to becoming an expert in my field, and has allowed me to explore cutting-edge solutions to computer engineering challenges in Qatar.”
