About me…

I am a second year PhD student in Computer Science at the University of Colorado Boulder, advised by Professor Shivakant Mishra. I am broadly interested in computational social science, and social networks analysis. In 2014, I received my B.S. in Computer Science from Taibah University, Saudi Arabia. In 2017, I received my M.S. in Computer Science from University College Dublin, Ireland.
