Saeed joined WMU in January 2014 after serving as a research fellow at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). He has become an expert in the design and development of algorithmic and high performance computing. His work is expected to have broad impact that will lead to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases with genetic predisposition including cancer, obesity, diabetes, heart disease and mental illness.
“Although still early in his career, Dr. Saeed already has had remarkable accomplishments in bio-medical computation,” said Dr. Houssam Toutanji, dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences. “He has earned a national and international reputation matched by very few researchers at this stage of their career. We greatly appreciate the university recognizing him and the important research he is doing in his field.”
