I am a Ph.D. student at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Cagliari advised by Dr. Ludovico Boratto and Prof. Salvatore Mario Carta. During my Ph.D., I am collaborating with the Data Science and Big Data Analytics research group at Eurecat – Technology Centre of Catalonia (Spain), Abinsula (Italy), and U4FIT (Italy).

My Ph.D. is supported by a grant from the National Operational Programme ESF-ERDF “Research and Innovation” 2014-2020, promoted by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research.

My current research interests focus on Algorithmic Fairness, Recommender Systems, and User Modeling.

Besides research work, I am also contributing to the Project Management and Software Development of the U4FIT platform.

Prior to starting the Ph.D., I was Data Scientist at theShukran (Italy). Earlier, I was a Software Engineer at Softfobia (Italy). I have also held Scrum Master and Software Engineering positions at B3G Technologies (Morocco), CGI (Morocco), and ALTEN (Morocco).

My prior work experience also includes teaching Object-Oriented Programming at the Mohammed V University.

Before moving to Italy, I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Computer Science at the Mohammed V University of Rabat and Master’s degree in Software Quality at Sidi Mohamed Ben Abdellah University of Fez. I am fluent in Arabic, Darija, English, French, and Italian, and have a steadily improving command of Spanish.
