I am an application-oriented Photonics Engineer aspiring to deliver top-notch research that will bring innovative products closer to their market launch.

Since 2015, I have been working with Prof. Geert Morthier in the Photonics Research Group of Gent University, towards a PhD. on High-Speed Laser Diodes. Prior to that, I worked with Prof. Anatol Khilo, and earned an MSc. in Microsystems Engineering from Masdar Institute of Science and Technology in collaboration with Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I also spent 3 months as a visiting scholar at Prof. Yoshiaki Nakano's group in the University of Tokyo. Finally, I finished at the top of my class my BSc. in Electrical Engineering in Ajman University in the United Arab Emirates, where I come from.

I am always interested in discussing potential opportunities. In case you have a cool idea and could use my enthusiasm and skills for a win-win collaboration feel free to reach me at .
