In 2003, Hind Zahour’s hometown of Casablanca, Morocco, was a victim of a series of suicide bombings. These bombings were one of the deadliest terrorist attacks that her country has ever experienced. Ever since that event, Zahour decided to devote her life into fighting terrorism through technology and computer science. Zahour’s research is based on understanding the ways in which cyber security acts as a counter to terrorist attacks in the world. Zahour believes that the global reach of terrorism means that its existence affects the entire international community. In light of this reality, Zahour hopes to bring her research with Professor Nitesh Chawla on this issue back to Morocco first and then, hopefully, to the greater African continent.
