Dr. Hussein Mohammed was born in Baghdad on 15th of April 1983. In 2010, he received his bachelor degree in computer and communication engineering from the Arab International University in Damascus. His interest in the promotion of science after his graduation led him to hold the position of education units’ coordinator in the UNHCR in Damascus, then the position of senior officer in the Child and Youth Protection and Development (CYPD) in the International Rescue Committee (IRC).
In 2012 he is awarded a full scholarship from ERASMUS MUNDUS. In 2014, he received his masters degree in informatics engineering from the University of the Algarve, then he received a research fellowship to continue his work on shape detection and recognition at the computer vision lab in the same university in Portugal.
In October 2015, he moved to Hamburg University to work as a research associate in 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 the principal investigator and the manager of the project 'Pattern Recognition in 2D Data from Digitised Images and Advanced Aquisition Techniques' within the Cluster of Excellence: Understanding Written Artefacts in Hamburg University.
