Computing has brought disruptive innovation to our daily lives - transforming the way we interact with each other, enabling new discoveries, accelerating development of global society. At QCRI we have created a vibrant research environment that facilitates this progression and that positions Qatar as a leader in advancing research and technology.
We are building a new model for research in the region through QCRI – one that not only stimulates a vibrant research environment but more notably one that has relevance and impact locally with global appeal.
Being part of a research institute in start-up mode, helping to build a strong team doing world class research, and at the same time experiencing a different environment in terms of culture and language, geography and climate.
I am proud to participate in creating a world-class research lab in the Middle East.
I joined QCRI because the institute is heading in the direction where I want to be.
I was excited by the challenge QCRI offered: help build a new world-class institute. I am glad to see it growing as a stimulating international research environment.
