The Support Team
I graduated from the American University of Beirut with a B.E. degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in 1996.I joined the Lebanese army for military service as a Lieutenant in the Medical Brigade as head of medical engineering workshop. I worked in local companies and had many Biomedical trainings in medical imaging (CT Scanner, Ultrasound and digital xray), monitoring, lithotripsy, and ventilation from Siemens, Storz Medical, Puritan Bennett, and Shimadzu. With Puritan Bennett I served as technical support for Tunisia and Algeria.
In 2016 I was enrolled at the American University of Beirut Medical Center (AUBMC) as a Clinical Biomedical Engineer. I am responsible for Critical Care areas (ICU, CCU, NICU, PICU, NUICU…), Operation Room, Ophthalmology department, Respiratory Labs, ENT department…. I was part of the team who transferred the medical center to a paperless hospital using “EPIC”.
Stars of Science enhanced my communication, cooperation and creativity. It gave me the opportunity to meet talented calibers and interact with gifted Arab inventors on a professional level. It was rewarding to accompany the journey of an idea that grew to be a design, evolved to be a prototype, and matured to be a real product. This experience reignited the spark of hope of a brighter Arab world, where pioneers can achieve their potentials and reach their goals. “Stars of Science” was not only a mentoring experience for me, but a learning opportunity that I shall cherish forever.
