I am a first-year Ph.D. student in the Physical Science and Engineering Department at KAUST, where I work under the supervision of Prof. Tariq Alkhalifah.

My passion lies in the captivating intersection of machine learning, geophysics, petrophysics, and well-logging for subsurface characterization.

In addition to my research interests, I am keen on learning the Arabic language.
