I am a PhD student at Concordia University Montreal, Quebec. I started my studies at the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering (CIISE) in September 2016, where I have been working with my advisor, Prof. Chadi Assi. My research interests are in the areas of cyber security including Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, and usable security and privacy.  

Before joining Concordia University, I was a graduate student and Research Assistant at UBC. I received a M.Sc. degree from the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, BC, Canada, in 2016.  I also received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees (with Distinction) from the Computer Engineering Department, Kuwait University (KU), Kuwait, in 2005 and 2009, respectively. I was also a full time Teaching Assistant with KU from 2005 to 2011.
