Research interests

My research interests is about the Detection of Arabic Fake News and Disinformation on Social Media. This area combines Distributed Network Graph Theory via analysing propagation behaviours and Natural Language Processing (NLP).  In particular, I am interested in experimenting with various techniques of detecting and tackling Arabic Fake News. We are developing a simulator to generate and study a number of different scenarios of propagating news through social media.
