I am a doctoral candidate at Drexel University's College of Computing and Informatics, advised by Professor Ellen Bass. I am also an honorary member of Professor Susan Fussell's Lab at Cornell University and a member of Professor Jennifer Rode's Rainbow Lab.
My research interest lies in the areas of Human-Computer Interaction and Computer-Mediated Communication. I am keen on understanding how humans use technology to communicate and how culture and gender influences such use. I also study to what extent designs align with social values and how to make the process of design a value sensitive one.
I have a Master’s of Science in Library and Information Science from Pratt Institute in New York City, and a BS degree from the Ecole des Science de l’Information in Morocco; together with an Associate degree in Computer Science, a BA in Language and Pedagogy and a BA in Linguistics. In 2011, I was honored to receive the Fulbright grant to fund my graduate education.
I am multilingual and I enjoy talking to people about research. Reach out to me with any questions and/or for research collaboration!
