I joined Carleton University in July, 2018. Currently, I'm part of the Institute for Data Science. I got my PhD from the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. I used to be part of the Data Systems Group, and I worked with this awesome supervisor. Prior to the PhD journey, I got my master's degree from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology, where I worked with Panos Kalnis, who quit updating his page apparently because it's too mainstream. Back in the days, I got my bachelor's degree from Alexandria University in Egypt.
I'm interested in all kinds of data integration topics. Basically, any problem that involves heterogeneous data. This includes but not limited to data wrangling, data curation, entity linking, schema mediation, etc.. I'm also interested in question answering over structured data and facts mining in knowledge bases.
If you're interested in joining my group, please take a couple of minutes reading this, and Andy Pavlo's blog on how to write a bad statement before sending me an email. You know, just to avoid the disappointment.
