Bio

I was educated in Algeria up to high school. I received a government grant to study in the UK as part of a programme to encourage high school graduates. I studied for an MEng in Computer Science from the University of Manchester. I am currently preparing for a PhD in Formal Methods, influenced by theoretical computer science and logic. The subject is Evolvable Systems.

Besides studies, I work within the localisation community to standardise Arabic translation, fix RTL/Arabic issues in Open Source Software and localise GNOME to Arabic (with great progress).

Projects
