Amal Hassan is a telecoms engineer in Sudan. She is pictured here in a group discussion about machine learning algorithms.
What excites you about your research?
The world becomes a small place by connecting through networking and the internet. My research will help to enhance algorithms through machine learning techniques to protect networks from software attacks. What excites me is that machine learning can do anything you want; it is fascinating and I'm enjoying learning.
What challenges do you face?
The challenges that I am facing are that resources about new scientific research and applications are blocked because of sanctions on my country Sudan.
What would you say to women and girls interested in going into your area of research?
I encourage everyone to continue learning and doing research in the field of your interest so you can be an innovative because science is the solution for all our problems.
