Few Words About Me

I’m currently the Academic Manager of Victoria University Sydney Campus. The Sydney team comprises of five Course Coordinators across the College of Business and the College of Engineering and Science, the Learning Support Advisors team, the Academic Support Officers team, and the Academic Teaching team, which includes close to 70 academics, and cohort of 2000 students.

In addition, I'm the founder of the IEEE IOEMLA Workshop, the IEEE WSU Chapter Chairman, an executive Committee Member of the IEEE NSW Section and I serve on a number of boards and committees at Victoria University. I previously participated in Western Sydney University (WSU)Research Committee, and in the WSU Senate Research Committee. I’m a TPC member of many prestigious International conferences. I frequently review for several highly ranked journals including Computer Network and IEE IoT Journals.I'm a senior member of IEEE, a member of the Australian Computer society (ACS), Cisco Networking Academy, and ACM.


My main teaching and research interests include: Security, Internet of Things, Human Computer Interaction, Ubiquitous Computing, e-health, health ICT, and Privacy.

Outside Academia, I held the position of IT manager for a number of international companies across the world (Ghana, Lebanon, and Australia). I have also worked in various short-term roles as a Business Analyst, IT consultant and Software Engineer. I've consistently delivered complex, medium-scale projects on time and within budget.

I'm fluent in English, French and Arabic. I enjoy travel, trying new cuisines and I can’t get enough of beach’s massages.
