I think we are on a long mission in this life, building and innovating is the primary goal especially for our country’s current condition.
Creating a solid foundation is the first step, which cannot be done by science alone, but focusing on intellectual fields along with science and team-building is the way to go. So I believe finding the perfect balance between those three points is what will make us a fully-capable community.
Interests and expertise fields:
I believe in no boundaries between technologies. That belief has guided my work & experience for the last ten years.
My expertise covers wide areas in the software & hardware industries, which mainly are; embedded systems, IoT technologies, web & cloud technologies, mobile applications, and the most important of them all; team leadership.
As for the research area, my focus is directed toward autonomous vehicles, which includes mechatronics, artificial intelligence, and computer vision systems.
That being said, my experiences may cover several areas, but my work shines where all of them meet together. Therefore, I have a great passion to lead & operate teams to create well-engineered solutions with no boundaries in used technologies.
Of course, all of us have a personal side; I enjoy photography, history, as well as social & Islamic studies.
On a side note, what does “R.Kalaji” mean?
Well, that’s right, it’s a two-word last name. “Rawas” comes from ‘leader’, and “Kalaji” comes from ‘citadel’.
It’s the Citadel of Aleppo of course (in the picture), where my ancestors lived between the 14th & 16th century*.
As for the ‘leader’ part, it’s related to their leadership in the carpet industry profession between 16th & 17th century.
*Based on the research done by our family in 2020.
