I am a fifth year Ph.D. candidate in University of Minnesota, Computer Science and Engineering. I work in the Data Management Lab with Prof. Mohamed Mokbel. I received my B.Sc.and M.Sc. in University of Alexandria. My main research is in the area of processing big spatial data in a distributed environment. I am currently leading the work in SpatialHadoop where I am taking Hadoop one step further to support spatial data. Previously, I worked in several research projects during my PhD including Sindbad, TAREEG, and MNTG.
