Hi. I'm Fares.

I'm an artificial intelligence researcher at the Department of Informatics, King's College London.
I was president of multi-award-winning KCL Tech in 2015.
I've co-founded hackathons like HackKing's, UnituHack and HackLondon.
I'm also the proud co-founder of BetakBetak, and I'm currently working on The Medic App.
I like to read and travel. I do the latter quite a bit.

Experience

I know what it's like to work in different environments, from game-changing corporations to prominent startups.

Code

I write mainly in Swift and Java. I dabble in Python and Rails. I spent a summer internship at Credit Suisse writing in AngularJS and D3.js. I'm a quick learner.

Leadership

I've cofounded startups and led teams that proved to be a great success. I was previously president of one of the UK's largest and most tech-focused student societies, and it won two awards in my time.

Workplace

I can adapt to different environments depending on where I'm placed. In the last few years, I've worked at a bank, a travel agency, a university and an ed-tech startup.

Design

I mix my love for art with code when I'm designing websites. Web design is what originally introduced me to computer programming and software development.

You can see my work experience in detail listed on my LinkedIn Profile.

Medic

I'm currently building The Medic App, an iOS app that uses planning algorithms to suggest a sleep and meal schedule that would suit the medicines you’re required to take.

KCL Tech

One of the UK's fastest-growing technology-focused societies, of which I'm a proud co-founder. Being part of this award-winning society has been a life-changing experience.

Blog

I write about hackathons, traveling and more hackathons. Follow my rants and stories on my blog.
