Saif Al-Shaikhli left the Institut für Informationsverabeitung.
Publications and research activities from the time after the departure are not listed here.

Saif Al-Shaikhli studied Biomedical Engineering at the Nahrain University in Baghdad. He received his Master degree from Al-Nahrain University in June 2006. Since 2007 he has been working as a Lecturer in Baghdad university in biomedical engineering department. Since October 2011 he has been working toward a PhD degree at the TNT Institute for information processing 'Institut für Informationverarbeitung' at the Leibniz University of Hannover. His research interests are brain and liver segmentation, and tumor classification in MRI and CT scan medical images.
