About me
I am currently doing my PhD in Computer Science at Universitat Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) under the supervision of Professor Vicent Caselles. My expected graduation date is 2012. I have obtained an MSc degree in Geometry, Imaging, and Virtual Environments from Universiteit Utrecht (Utrecht, the Netherlands) in 2006. Before that, I obtained a BSc degree in Computer Science from the American University of Beirut (Beirut, Lebanon) in 2001.

Research interests:
Computer Vision, Image Processing, Variational Methods and Computational Geometry.
Curriculum Vitae: PDF
PhD thesis: PDF Submitted, expected defense date before the end of 2012.
