I majored in control and instrumentation (electrical engineering) from the University of Khartoum (Sudan), and then extrapolated that to control theory in man and machines in my MSc on Cybernetics from the University of Reading (UK).

Passionate about learning, my journey from a student, to a teaching assistant and then a lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Khartoum, came about developing soft and hard technical skills from both voluntary and academic work; projects and specialized courses; in person and on line. I started my PhD journey with the H3ABioNet node of Sudan (Center for Bioinformatics and Systems Biology), targeting the areas of computational, statistical and mathematical methods of data analysis in Genome Wide Association Studies (GWAS) and Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS). Now, my journey is taking me to the University of Groningen (NL)- generously funded by the Schlumber Faculty for the Future fellowship, where I’m conducting the remaining research in my double PhD program.

Welcome to my space!
