Biography

I am a PhD student in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University at Buffalo (UB), the State University of New York (SUNY). I received my B.S. in Electronics Engineering with high honors from the American University in Cairo (AUC) in 2008. In 2010 I received my M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from the University at Buffalo. Currently, I am working in the Wireless Networks and Embedded Systems (WiNES) Laboratory at UB under Prof. Tommaso Melodia.
