Background and activities

I am a PhD candidate in Medical Technology. I am working in the MR Cancer Group. My Work is aiming to develop a Computer-Aided Diagnosis system for Prostate cancer using Multiparametric MRI. 

In 2016 I received a Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering with Distinction from University of Dundee (UK). During My MSc research, I was part of Sonopill project and the Ultrasound Lab at IMSaT (Dundee, UK). My research focused on the Microultrasound technology (High resolution Ultraound) and tissue characterization. The project title was Microultrasound (μUS) Scanning of Oesophageal Tissue.

In 2009-2014 I did my Bachelor degree in Biomedical Engineering at the German Jordanian University (Jordan). My BSc thesis was a research study about Radiation Doses and Risks from Computed Tomography in Jordan. During my Bachelor, I spent one year in Germany at HS Koblenz as an exchange student and as an intern at the Medical robotics Lab where I worked on some tasks related to the Robot Assisted Laser Osteotomy research.

Currently, I am working on design fully automatic computer-aided diagnosis systems based on Multiparametric MRI that could be used to improve the management of Prostate cancer in clinical practice.
