I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering ESIB at Université Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth. My research activities focus on routing and resource allocation algorithms for wired and wireless communication networks. I teach courses on various topics related to IP networks.
I graduated from the Faculty of Engineering, Saint Joseph University, Beirut, in 2002. In 2006, I received a Ph.D. in communication networks from Telecom Bretagne, Rennes. After my Ph.D. I spent one year at Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs Europe. From 2007 to 2016, I was with the University of Rennes 1 and with IRISA Labs as an Associate Professor. In 2016, I joigned the Faculty of Engineering ESIB at Université Saint-Joseph de Beyrouth as an associate professor. My research activities take place at the CIMTI laboratory at ESIB.
My current research topics on wireless networks include:
User association and radio access technology selection.
Resource allocation and interference mitigation.
Power control and energy efficiency.
