Welcome to my homepage! Here is some information about me: I received my Bachelor of Electrical Engineering, in Computer and Automatic Control, from Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt in 1981. In 1983, I arrived at McGill and left in 1986 with an M.Sc. in Computer Science. My Masters Thesis was under the supervision of Professor Vasek Chvatal, who introduced me to the intriguing world of Graph Theory. A couple of months after graduation, I joined Bishop's University as a Lecturer in the Computer Science Department. In 1991, I took two years of Perfectionnement leave, and spent them in Manchester, England, starting my Ph.D. in the Department of Computation at UMIST, under the supervision of Mr. G.V. Conroy. My thesis work involved combining Genetic Algorithms with Decision trees, to build a robust Machine Learning algorithm. Back at Bishop's in 1993, I was a bit distracted by the arrival of two lovely children in my life. Nevertheless, I successfully completed my Ph.D. in 1997, and am currently an associate professor at Bishop's.
