Growing up in a small town in Morocco with suboptimal healthcare service, I quickly realized the importance of diagnostic devices and hospital infrastructure in delivering appropriate medical care. This led me to study Electrical Engineering with a focus on medical devices at Case Western Reserve University, where I am completing my BS/MS degree. My vision is to advance the integration of technology in medicine through new and innovative medical devices that could help advance and democratize medical care. When I am not studying, I enjoy watching soccer, exercising, and trying new foods.
