About me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at WINLAB/ECE department, Rutgers University. I am also a member of the CyPhy Lab. My advisors are Professor Richard P. Martin and Professor Jorge Ortiz. Also, I closely work with Dr. Richard E. Howard.

Before coming to Rutgers University, I obtained my MSc in Communication Network Planning & Management at the University of Portsmouth, the UK in 2008 and my BSc in Computer Engineering at the University of Basrah, Iraq in 2004. While pursuing my Ph.D., I obtained my second MSc in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rutgers University in May 2018. In my research, I focus on Connected Health, Low-energy Sensing, and Machine Learning.

From 2004 to 2007, I worked as an NSS engineer with Zain Iraq. During the period of 2009-2010, I worked as a Senior Technical Support Engineer with MEC-Telematic Telecommunications Consultancy. From 2010 to 2015, I was with the State Co. for Internet Services (part of the Ministry of Communications) in Iraq as Senior Communication Networks Engineer.
