I am an Associate Professor in Electronic Systems Engineering (ESE). I received my Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Ottawa in 2013. From 2013 to 2015, I worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow and a Product Development Manager of “SecCharge” Project (Secure Electric Vehicle Ecosystem for Smart Grid) in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Ottawa.

My current research interests include Cyber-security in networked systems, WSN-cloud integration, industrial internet of things, big data in WSNs, Cyber-physical systems (CPS) and smart grids, modeling of failure propagation in CPS systems, cross-layer design in WSNs, delay and reliability critical WSNs applications and QoS mechanisms in WSNs, implementation of ambient intelligence
and AI to improve QoS and security.

I am currently looking for highly motivated Ph.D. students who are interested in pursuing research in wireless sensor networks, cyber-physical systems, ambient intelligence, and security and privacy in Ad Hoc Networks. 

Prospective students should send me an email with their CV, academic credentials, and a brief description of their area of interest.


   Current Research Interests:

  • Wireless Sensor Networks  (WSNs)
  • Ambient Intelligence in sensor networks
  • Security and privacy in networked systems
  • WSN-cloud integration
  • Cyber-physical systems
  • Industrial internet of things
