  • Imaging genetics
  • Bioinformatics
  • Spatio-temporal gene expression
  • Biological Network analysis


I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Imaging Genetics section at the Radiology Department of Leiden University Medical Center. I am also a member of the Delft Bioinformatics Lab at TU Delft. I am interested in developing computational methods to analyze brain transcriptome atlases to better understand molecular mechanisms underlying biological functions and diseases of the brain. I am also also interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms behind imaging phenotypes.

In 2014, I spent three months as a visiting scientist at the Department of Genome Sciences at the University of Washington (Seattle, USA) where I worked on identifying autism risk genes at the lab of Evan Eichler. This research visit was supported by a fellowship from the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). I completed my undergraduate studies on Systems and Biomedical Engineering at Cairo University, Egypt in 2008 and I received my M.Sc. in Communication and Information Technology from Nile University, Egypt in 2010.
