I am an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Computer Science at the University of Winnipeg since 2019. Previous to that, I served as a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Computing of Queen's University at Kingston as a member of the Queen’s Reliable Software Technology (QRST) research group. I received my Ph.D. in Computer Engineering in 2018 from École Polytechnique de Montréal at Université de Montréal . I have a M.Res. degree in Telecommunication Networks, and a M.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the Lebanese University.

I am a registered engineer with the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec. I have published peer-reviewed research papers extensively and led many high-impact research projects in cybersecurity while collaborating with several Canadian universities such as McGill University, Université de Montréal, Queen's University, and Ryerson University.
