๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸซProfile Summary

In my current role as a Postdoctoral Researcher at INRAE in Versailles, France, I specialize in plant cell cycle dynamics through image analysis and compressed fluorescence acquisition. As a Software Engineer at IS Technologies, Courbevoie, France, I contributed to robust server-side components, integrated AI APIs, and enhanced search engine recommendation systems. My Ph.D. in Machine Learning Interpretability from ENSIAS, UM5*, Rabat, involved groundbreaking research in medical AI, including mentoring fellow researchers and contributing to peer-reviewed journals. Proficient in Python, data mining, and deep learning, I possess strengths in scientific writing and presentation skills. Fluent in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, and German, I hold a C1 IELTS certification and received the Best Poster Award at the 15th International Conference on Health Informatics in 2022. Beyond my professional endeavors, I nurture a keen interest in languages, reading, and running. My educational background includes a Software Engineering Degree (Web & Mobile) from ENSIAS, UM5*, Rabat, and completion of Engineering Preparatory Classes at CPGE Salmane Al Faressi in Salรฉ, Morocco.
