I am a professor of Communications Networks in Cairo University. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science and Computer Engineering from North Carolina State University (Dept. of Computer Science), Raleigh, NC, in 1995 where I worked in the Center for Advanced Communications and Computations (then the Center for Communications and Signal Processing). I obtained my M.Sc. in Engineering Mathematics and B.Sc. (honors) in Electrical Engineering from Cairo University in 1990 and 1987 respectively.

From Nov. 2007 till Jan. 2010 I was the chief-technical officer of SySDSoft embedded wireless division, and from June 2005 till Nov. 2007 the technical director for the mobile WiMAX/IEEE 802.16e protocol stack development. From 1995 to 1997, I was a member of scientific staff with Bell-Northern Research/Nortel Labs in Richardson, TX where my work focused on the MTX-CDMA wireless product and first radio-over-fiber systems using ATM technology (which was a hot technology then).

Previously, I have also worked with ITWorx and WTMEA.  My work with ITWorx as chief architect resulted in the realization of the NetCelera network appliance that was acquired by SwanLabs and eventually by F5 Networks.  I held adjunct positions with the  American University in Cairo and the Egyptian National Telecom Institute. My consulting assignments included work for the United Nations World Food Programme, the Egyptian Ministry of Interior, Telecom Egypt, Cairo University, Ain Shams University, ISIS International, International Electronics/Bahgat Group in Egypt and AmerNet, Broadband Technologies and Alphatronix/Auspex Systems in the USA.

My area of research is radio resource management in wireless systems, quality-of-service support in multi-service packet networks, and optical networking. I have published many publications in refereed international journals and conferences. I was an editor for the IEEE Communications Magazine-Internet Technology Series from Nov. 1998 till Dec. 2002. I have also been a member of the technical program committees and session chair for several IEEE, IFIP, and ITC conferences. I was the technical program co-chair for the IFIP MWCN’2003 conference in Singapore. I have also served as an expert evaluator and panelist for the European Commission in Brussels for evaluating research proposals submitted to the EU FP7/ICT, FP7/PEOPLE, FP6/IST, FP5/IST, and  TEMPUS programs. I also serve as expert evaluator for the ITIDA ITAC, NTRA, and STDF. I am a senior member of IEEE and member of IFIP TC6.3 workgroup (Performance of Communication Systems).

On the personal side, I enjoy traveling, outdoor sports, spending time with my family, and free Internet browsing.
