I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Bradley Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, where I am currently working with Dr. Charles Clancy in the Hume Center for National Security and Technology. I earned my B.S. degree in Computer and System Engineering in 2005 from the Faculty of Engineering, Ain-Shams University in Cairo, Egypt. In 2010, I joined the Direct Ph.D. program in Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech, and got my M.S. degree in Computer Engineering in 2013. My current research interests are in IoT, Mobile, and Cloud Computing and Security.

For my Ph.D. dissertation, I am working on a project for securing Linux containers through anomaly-based Intrusion detection and remediation. The Prezi below gives an overview of how the system works. For more details, please refer to my publications
