My research intersects software engineering and human-computer interaction (HCI). It draws from social computing, computer-supported cooperative work (CSCW), and application-driven approaches to ubiquitous computing (UbiComp)..
I hold a PhD in Computer Science from the Centre for HCI Design in London, MSc in Computer Graphics and Multimedia Design from the George Washington University (GWU), and MEM in Software Engineering and Information Systems Management from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at GWU.
Prior to joining MIT's Ideation Lab in Sep 2015, I served as the Vice Dean for Academic Affairs in Prince Sultan University (PSU) in 2014 and Vice Chair of the Software Engineering Department at King Saud University in 2011-2014; and held the positions of Research Associate in the University of Texas UT-Houston and an Honorary Research Fellow at the School of Engineering & Digital Arts in the University of Kent. I also served as the coordinator of the Software and Knowledge Engineering Research group (SKERG) and director of the HCI Lab 2010-2015 in King Saud University.
