I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at The College of Charleston.
I received my doctorate in Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte under the
supervision of Professor Zbigniew W. Ras in the field of data mining; more precisely, object-driven and
temporal-based action rules.
I earned my Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems from Yarmouk University, Irbid, Jordan,
and my Master of Science in Computer Science from Northern Illinois University, IL.
Other than data mining and machine learning, my interests lie in computer vision, intelligent tutoring
systems, crowdsourcing and collective intelligence, gamification, social networks and smart web/mobile
systems and their uses to connect people and promote societies. I am also interested in philosophy, and
few topics in social science; such as cognitive psychology, evolutionary psychology, social
epidemiology, and anthropology.
