Research Dilemma: Research Stars and Research Monsters

Research Dilemma: Research Stars and Research Monsters

It is not a coincidence that all undergraduates in CS want a career in the industry and do not wish to go for postgraduate studies, research careers or academic careers. The obvious failure everywhere on earth and lack of transparency of managing conferences, journals, academic recruitment and promotion system, is visible to students, and probably […]

Computing Origins, Future, and Challenges

Computing Origins, Future, and Challenges

Summarising my 5 years of lecturing in computer science and engineering, and against all frustrations, I still see computing to be the most important profession for so many years to come. I was requested to write an article (mhelal_computingArticle), and the thoughts expressed themselves in the time frame given. This article could have been better […]

Msc & PhD

My MSc and PhD research work developed a library for high dimensional datasets (hypercube or tensors) data structure representation and indexing, using the conformal computing – Mathematics of Arrays (MoA) constructs. I developed a hyper-cube partitioning scheme for parallel processing, and applied it to the Multiple Sequence Alignment problem, using a reduced search space method. […]
