You can find below a summary of my research and teaching experience that spans academia and industry.
I investigated security and privacy aspects in the new computing paradigm of the Internet of Things. Previously, I have studied the location privacy threats posed by mobile apps. I also researched scheduling approaches for Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs).
I investigated the security and privacy threats that BLE-equipped devices pose to their owners. I also designed and implemented BLE-Guardian to protect users against those threats.
I investigated privacy enhancing mechanisms to protect users against location privacy threats in indoor environments.
I Designed and instructed the Mobile Ad hoc and Sensor Networks lab, Spring 2010. Additionally, I prepared course materials and assisted in teaching different courses spanning software, networking, and communication areas.
I investigated channel models and algorithms for hybrid and cooperative positioning using global navigation satellites systems, cellular networks, and wireless area networks.
At AUB, I investigated multiple research problems spanning property-based coverage of test suites, caching architectures in Mobile Ad hoc Networks, mobile access to web services, channel contention in vehicular Ad hoc networks, web change detection, and hardware testing.
