Lama Afara

Assistant Professor of Computer Science


Dr. Lama Affara is currently a Professor of Computer Science at Beirut Arab University and a board member at the Syndicate of Computer Science in Lebanon.She began her studies at Rafik Hariri University from which she holds a BSc in Computer Science. She finished an MSc in Computer Sciences from American University of Beirut where she also held a graduate assistant position at the Dean’s Office in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. She completed a PhD in Computer Science from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in 2018.During her PhD studies, she was a graduate research assistant at the Image and Video Understanding Lab at the Visual Computer Center. Her PhD work focused on urban image analysis with convolutional sparse coding.Her current research interests are broadly in image processing and computer vision, and specifically in image features and understanding.
