I am a life-long learner who never left education. Education is my cause. I work as a Lecturer in the Faculty of Computing & IT (FCIT) at King Abdulaziz University (KAU) since 2007. Prior to that, I spent 3 years in various technical positions in IT departments at: Dar Al-Hekma University, Effat University, and Dar Al-Fikr Schools.

I received 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.

Some of the interesting career experiences I had are: being 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 FCIT-KAU 2008-2011 (Learn more...), the founding lecturer of the network lab at FCIT_KAU in 2007 (Learn more...), and the founding lecturer of the 1st hacking competition at FCIT-KAU in 2015 (Learn more...).
