Intro

My research interests include deep learning, remote sensing, and anomaly detection. During my studies, I specialized in computer vision and understanding of 3D scenes. Currently, I am a PhD student in computer science at the University of Bonn, Germany under supervision of Prof. Dr. Juergen Gall. I received my Master's degree in geomatics engineering (GEOENGINE) from the University of Stuttgart in 2019, and prior to that my Bachelor's degree in geodesy and topographic engineering from the University of Aleppo in 2015.

Projects

DETECT , DFG Collaborative Research Centre

Deep generative neural networks for detecting anomalous events in the water cycle (2022-present).

Precise Localization and Modelling of Railway Sleepers

Given an initial point on the first railway sleeper, the novel method determines the positions and orientations of the following sleepers and their relevant components. It is mainly based on linear algebra. The data are point clouds derived from mobile laser scanning. I developed the algorithm at intermetric GmbH in the context of multidisciplinary project (Rendsburg High Bridge) (2022).

Semantic Segmentation of Point Cloud Applied to Railway Scenes

Automated inspection of railway’ power line using 3D deep learning and mobile laser scanning. The dataset was collected by intermetric GmbH. It consists of 7 classes and covers a diverse range of railway scenes including tunnels (2021).

Orthofoto Generation with kd-tree

Fast orthophoto generation from point cloud, implemented using OpenCV and Open3D libraries (2021).

Captured 3D Data (As-Built) to the 3D Model (As-Planned)

The algorithm computes discrepancies between point cloud (as-built) and 3D CAD model (as-planned) for reliable assuring of correct geometry and change detection in construction sites. It was developed at intermetric GmbH in the context of Stuttgart 21 project (2021).

Evaluation of Railway Station Platforms

This is a heuristic-based algorithm for automated geometric quality assurance of railway platforms (U-Bahn München). The invented method enables the extraction of railway trajectory and its distances to railway platforms. Algorithm developed at intermetric GmbH (2021).

CNN-based Algorithm for Automatic Cracks Detection in Tunnels

This is an implementation of a deep convolutional neural network for inspection of construction condition in tunnels. The input data are orthophotos with submillimeter resolution. The dataset was collected by intermetric GmbH (2020).

Semantic Mesh Segmentation using PointNet++

A Master Thesis at the Institute of Photogrammetry (Ifp), University of Stuttgart (2019). The aim of this project was to explore a semantic segmentation of meshes in an outdoor urban scenario and to make use of PointNet/PointNet++, which are point based deep neural networks applicable to meshes. The implemented pipeline segments meshes semantically including pre-processing, incorporation of LiDAR point cloud with mesh, training and evaluation. The used dataset is a 2.5 D textured mesh covering an urban area of the village Hessigheim in Germany.

Using GIS in Digitization of Cadastral Plans

A Diploma Thesis at the University of Aleppo (2015). We tackled the problem of digitizing old cadastral plans aiming to improve resource use efficiency. We established a pipeline for georeferencing and preprocessing of scanned paper maps in order to use them in a Real-Estate-Agencies database.
