Ahmed received his Ph.D. in computational systems biology from KU Leuven in Belgium; and joined the Peltz lab in 2017. During his PhD, he analyzed genomic and proteomic data to characterize the impact of genetic mutations on phenotypes. His post-doctoral research focuses on characterizing the impact of genomic variations on mouse biomedical phenotypes. To interpret findings from mouse models measuring responses to drugs of addiction, he is developing strategies for the integrative analysis of multi-omic data, and using AI approaches.
When Ahmed is not working, he is either running, watching cricket, music mixing or sleeping.
