Biography

Postdoctoral researcher working with Prof. Dr.-Ing Antonia Wachter-Zeh. I obtained a PhD from the ECE department of Rutgers University in January 2020. During my PhD, I held short term visiting positions at Aalto, Technical University of Berlin and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. In addition, I spent three years as PhD candidate at the ECE department of Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT). From August 2014 till January 2020, I was a member of the CSI lab supervised by Prof. Salim El Rouayheb.

In terms of studies, I received a masters degree in Information and Communication from the Lebanese University after doing the thesis at IIT in 2014. I graduated as a Computer and Communication Engineer from the Lebanese University in 2013 after doing the engineering senior project at Center of Nuclear Science and Science of Matter (CSNSM) in Paris, France and  an internship at procsim-consulting company in EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2012.
