Haitham holds an engineering BS from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a (French) Scientific Baccalaureate in Mathematics from Lycée Descartes. He also conducted a research project in Computer Vision at the University College London, under the supervision of Prof. Jan Boehm in the 3D impact research group.

In college, he founded two start-ups, receiving faculty and investor backing for both. One was a software platform that allowed companies to access the untapped pool of final year undergraduate students and collaborate on projects. The other was a culinary venture for home chefs to sell their dishes to locals in the area.  

After graduation, Haitham worked at an early-stage technology startup in NYC where he designed mission-critical algorithms and took part in a range of contract and open-source software projects in San Francisco, winning a hackathon along the way.

Born in Morocco, Haitham speaks Arabic, French and Spanish, and has traveled widely, living in several cities across the US, Western Europe and North Africa. When not working Haitham enjoys playing sports, particularly soccer.
