About me

I am currently pursuing my DPhil. (Phd.) in Computer Science at the University of Oxford, UK.

I hold a MSc. degree in Information Security from University College London (UCL). My master thesis examined the security of RSA public-keys, in particular, it examined the factorable RSA keys issue in TLS servers on the Internet. Previously, I obtained BSc. in Computer Science from KAU.

When I have time I enjoy learning new things, especially those related to computer science. I also enjoy reading and art work. Some of my very old art work can be found here .

Some of the interesting career experiences I had are: research internship at SUTD, Singapore; invited by Google (Munich office) for their Web Security Summit 2018; the recipient of IEEE R8 Clementina Saduwa Award for Women in Engineering 2015; the recipient of the IEEE R8 Exemplary Student Branch Counselor 2015; the first Head of the Labs & Technical Support Unit at the College of Computing & IT (CCIT) at KAU (2008 - 2011); the founding lecturer of the Network Lab at CCIT-KAU in 2007; and the founding lecturer of the first Student Hacking Competition at CCIT-KAU in 2015.
