BIO

ABOUT ME

Graduated from the Department of Computer Science at Damascus University with a major in Artificial Intelligence back in 2010. Received my M.Sc and Ph.D. degrees in Media Design from Keio University in 2015 and 2018, respectively. After finishing my Ph.D. degree, I worked as an assistant professor at Keio University from 2018 until 2020. Currently, I am working as a Research and Development Director at AvatarIn Inc. My research, namely “Radical Bodies”, expands on the topic of the machines as an extension of our bodies, and emphasizes the role of technologies and robotics in reshaping our innate abilities and cognitive capacities. My work, which is experience driven, has been demonstrated and awarded at various international conferences such as SIGGRAPH, Augmented Human, and ICAT.
