Dr. Hussein Mohammed received his masters degree in informatics engineering from the University of the Algarve and continued his work on shape detection and recognition as a research associate at the computer vision lab of the same university in Portugal. In October 2015, he moved to Hamburg University in order to continue his research in the field of computational document analysis. In March 2019, he received his doctoral degree in computer science from Hamburg University for his work in computational analysis of handwriting styles. Since July 2019, he is a principal investigator at the Cluster of Excellence: Understanding Written Artefacts in Hamburg University. His main research interests are pattern recognition, machine learning and computer vision.
