About Me

My name is Fatemah Alharbi. I was born and raised in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. degree in computer science at the University of California, Riverside. I work as a research assistant at the Networks and Communication Lab under the supervision of Dr. Zhiyun Qian. In addition, I am a lecturer in the College of Computer Science and Engineering at Taibah University, Yanbu, Saudi Arabia.

My interaction with computer science started when I first learned to program. In my undergraduate studies, my interest in information security started to take shape. My reason for applying to the Ph.D. program is two-fold. First, I am very passionate about the field of computer science with special research interest in security. Second, I believe by teaching the subject I can make a difference in the delicate field of security. I believe teaching is an integral part of doing research. A discovery is far from complete if one does not also find a way to present it to others.
