Our residents in the spotlight

As part of a serie of videos and portraits of residents of the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, the Syrian resident at the MEC, Majd Abazid, testified to his history, his career and his ideals.

Majd has a Masters in Data Science from the University of Paris Saclay and is currently a doctoral student in artificial intelligence at the Polytechnic Institute of Paris. He works on the detection of neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Alzheimer’s.

In Syria he was a peaceful activist in the revolution and, despite the obstacles, Majd was determined to do a doctorate because he always liked scientific research, which he does now.

The MEC is very proud to have this great researcher among its residents, which is why we would like to share this video recorded by the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris.
