About me

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Computer Science at Rutgers University . I am a member of the Wireless Information Network Laboratory (WINLAB). I am working with Prof. Marco Gruteser. Prior joining Rutgers University, I received my master's degree from the Wireless Intelligent Networks Center (WINC) at the Nile University in July 2011 and received my bachelor's degree from the Computer and Systems Engineering Department at the Faculty of Engineering at Alexandria University in July 2009. I was advised by Prof. Moustafa Youssef and Prof. Khaled A. Harras.

My main research interests include mobile and wireless networks, pervasive computing, location determination systems, sensor networks, ad-hoc networks, computer networks and systems. My recent projects includes:
