Amna Ahmed El Mustafa is a Predoctoral Research Fellow at the King Center on Global Development. Her current research interest is the applications of machine learning (ML) in solving different developmental issues in the global south from climate change, and poverty to health problems. Amna earned her master’s in machine learning at the African Institute for Mathematical Science (AMMI) in Senegal, and her bachelor's in engineering in Khartoum University, Sudan. In her master’s thesis, Amna investigated the fairness of ML models used to predict wealth measures from satellite data and whether they are biased toward urban areas. Amna is also conducting research in modeling species distribution with ML and remote sensing.
