QCRI provides a unique opportunity to conduct high-impact research with top researchers from all over the world. I feel proud to be a part of QCRI team and look forward to solving real-world problems that can have long-term effects for Qatar and the region as a whole.
Dr. Muhammad Imran is a Research Scientist at the Qatar Computing Research Institute (QCRI) where he leads the Crisis Computing group from both science and engineering directions. Dr. Imran has published over 40 research papers in top-tier international conferences and journals. Two of his papers have received "Best Paper" awards. He has acted as Co-Chair of the Social Media Studies track of the ISCRAM international conference since 2014 and has served as Program Committee (PC) for many major conferences and workshops (ICWSM, ACM DH, ICWE, SWDM, etc.). Dr. Imran has worked as a Post-Doctoral researcher at QCRI (2013-2015). He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science (HCI) from the University of Trento (2013), where he also co-taught various computer science courses (2009-2012). Dr. Imran holds a Master of Science in Computer Science with a distinction from Mohammad Ali Jinnah University, Islamabad (2007).
Dr. Imran's interdisciplinary research focuses on social computing, human-computer interaction (HCI), information retrieval (IR) from the real-time web, and stream processing. He analyzes social networks during time-critical situations using big data analysis techniques such as data mining, machine learning, and deep neural networks, to develop novel computational models, techniques, and technologies useful for stakeholders in gaining situational awareness and actionable information.
Dr. Imran has been actively working in the areas of information processing, information extraction, web engineering, and human-computer interaction. Before joining QCRI, Dr. Imran was a PhD candidate at the University of Trento, where he specifically worked in the Distributed Systems and Data & Knowledge Management research programs.
