Khalid comes from Cairo, Egypt. He studied Electronics Engineering at the German University of Cairo, and is currently doing a master’s degree in Optics and Photonics between Aix-Marseille University and Karlsruhe Institute of Technology – specializing in Biomedical Photonics. In 2016, he completed his bachelor thesis at the University of Stuttgart, developing a smart sensor system. He worked at Institute Fresnel on Coherent Raman Imaging under the supervision of Prof. Hervé Rigneault. His latest research experience was at EPFL, where he did a 3-month internship in Prof. Christophe Moser’s lab (LAPD), developing a projection system for testing of retinal prostheses. His research interests include microscopy and imaging techniques for biological applications. That is why he found the Hilbert lab to be a very interesting group to do research; he is currently working on building a model of data populations which can be used to optimize the reconstruction of specific population states. In his free time, Khalid likes writing, hiking, and listening to music.
