Bouhali is research professor and director of Research Computing at Texas A&M University at Qatar. He has recently founded the TAMUQ Advanced Scientific Computing group (TASC), a specialized group in computational modeling and simulation. His main work is on computational physics, Monte Carlo simulation and high performance computing. Before he joined TAMUQ, he was given the responsibility of the computing group at the High Energy Physics Institute of Brussels. His research focused on the scientific grid computing, in particular the optimization and implementation of the grid infrastructure for intensive scientific applications.
Currently he is involved in several projects on 3D scientific visualization, distributed computing and image analysis techniques. He is also running the TAMUQ 3D visualization facility and the supercomputer machine. Dr. Bouhali is a member of the strategic committee for the future Big Data Institute at TAMU.
