W​​hy did you choose KAUST?

The approach of KAUST to scientific research played an important role in my decision. KAUST supports scientific research without considering profit, and supports successful researchers working to industrialize their ideas. In addition, KAUST has lots of resources related to the computational sciences, such as the supercomputer Shaheen, HPC labs, etc.

What is your research topic?​

My research focuses on modeling the behavior of the electromagnetic waves in the computer environment, usually called computational electromagnetics. My research specifically focuses on time domain integral equation techniques and high frequency approximations like physical optics.

What do you think about the KAUST environment and social life?​

KAUST’s campus is large, and there are lots of facilities to provide entertainment for employees and students. KAUST is like paradise in the desert.
