Muhammad joined the lab in May 2022 as a graduate student pursuing his PhD in Genetics.

He graduated with a BSc in Computational Biology and Genomics from University of Science and Technology, Zewail City, Egypt, in June 2021.

Muhammad is broadly interested in learning about different types of data and methods that can be used together with genetics to understand how brains work. During his first year at the University of Iowa, he was able to acquire remarkable skills in single-cell RNA-Seq, spatial transcriptomics, neuroimaging, and deep learning analyses. Currently, Muhammad is working on transcript imputation from individuals’ genotypes of different traits.

In his free time, he enjoys cooking, watching tv shows and carpet cleaning videos (so satisfying!).
