Name:Hammad Ahmad

I am a fifth year Computer Science and Engineering Ph.D. candidate at the University of Michigan. My areas of research interest broadly span software engineering and cognition.

Coming from a liberal arts background, I am very passionate about teaching and the quality of instruction in the classroom. I have taught a variety of courses, ranging from introductory-level core courses to upper-level electives, as instructor of record. I also actively seek out opportunities for undergraduate mentorship, with a particular focus on students from groups less represented in Computer Science or those with non-traditional backgrounds.

Outside of school, I love playing soccer. My favorite team is Manchester United–it is a rare occurrence for me to miss a United game, regardless of the time it airs. I also consider myself semi-decent at ping pong. I enjoy portrait photography, but unfortunately have not had much time to take my camera out of the storage closet.
