I am an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Engineering ESIB at Saint Joseph University of Beirut. My research activities focus on radio resource allocation algorithms for wireless communication networks. I teach courses on various topics related to IP networks.
I received in 2006 a Ph.D. in communication networks from IMT Atlantique, Rennes. After my Ph.D., I spent one year at Nokia Bell Labs, France. From 2007 to 2016, I was with the University of Rennes 1 and with IRISA as an Associate Professor. In 2016, I joined the Faculty of Engineering ESIB at Saint Joseph University of Beirut as an associate professor. Since 2019, I am the director of 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.
