I’m currently pursuing a master’s degree in Engineering and Management at MIT, focusing on the archeticture, engineering, deployment, and management of Machine Learning Systems. I spent the past 6 years at Aramco working in various roles that included quality control, supply planning and optimization, and process engineering. Before that, I had brief stint at General Electric where I worked in warehousing operations. I obtained my bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering at King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals in 2015.

I am the founder and chair of @PyDataRiyadh and @PyDataJeddah where we aim to advocate for open source tools development and usage in Saudi Arabia. My current focus areas are Arabic NLP and MLOps.
