He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of Wolverhampton in 2009, his MSc (Distinction) in Advanced Distributed Systems from the University of Leicester in 2007, his BSc (Hons) in Computer Communications from the Arts, Sciences & Technology University In Lebanon in 2004, and a DipCompSci in Computer Information Systems from Siblin Training College in 2002. He is the co-founder and member of the FUture Networks and Distributed Systems research Group (FUNDS). He is the founder and head of the MMU IoT Lab. His research interests are in highly decentralised algorithms, communication, and cross-layered solutions to wireless sensor networks. He also has research interests in pervasive and mobile computing, specifically in Internet of Things. He has been researching and publishing work that focuses on big sensory data mining and visualisation. All his research projects are interdisciplinary, applied to real life problems. Latterly, his research focus is on the system design of distributed intelligent systems and their application within large-scale wireless sensor networks, including smart cities, border security and monitoring, flood detection and control, as well as waste tracking and management.
He is a highly proficient, experienced, and professionally certified cyber security professional, specialising in: Threat analysis; Information and network security management; Internet investigations; Penetration testing Cyber and insider investigations; Breach assessments and incident response; Forensic and crisis readiness planning; and Translation of technical concepts to non-specialists. He has intensive experience in cyber defence course development and instruction; cyber range platform and attackscenario design and execution. Many of his security skills evolved from his wider expertise in information extraction/mining, data visualisation as well as computer networks and communications skills. He is a reviewer to many international conferences and journals specialising the cyber security.
His teaching experience includes leading second and third year undergraduate courses in Computer Networks, Management and Security.
He has been an active member of the technical program committee on many international conferences and journals. Hammoudeh is regularly invited to talk at international conferences and workshops. He is External Examiner for the BSc (Hons) Computer Security and Forensics at the University of Bedfordshire. He is also External examiner for the MSc Computer Networks and Security and MSc Cloud Computing awards at the Staffordshire University.
