About me

I am a Junior Professor at Ulm University covering the topics of Connected Mobility and High Performance Communication Networks. My research focus lies on stochastic modelling and optimization of networked systems. As AGYA member I aim to significantly contribute to shared goals in innovation and technology between Germany and the Arab world. My main goal is to strengthen the Arab-German research cooperation especially on topics such as Connected Energy, Transport and Health Infrastructure.
With my strong background in the field of communication networking and distributed systems, as well as, my experience in different interdisciplinary research projects, I aim to establish promising projects with partners from the Arab world.
