I am currently an assistant professor in the faculty of computers and informatics, Suez Canal University, Egypt.

From November 2012 to November 2013, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the group CIDRE, at Supélec, Rennes. In this position, I was participating to the research project CAPPRIS (Collaborative Actions on the Protection of Privacy Rights in the Information Society), which is funded by INRIA.

From November 2011 to November 2012, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the group Comète, at LIX, École Polytechnique, Paris. My position was fully supported by INRIA.

Until April 2011, I was a PhD student at the School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS) in the University of Southampton under the supervision of Prof. Vladimiro Sassone. In my PhD study, I researched models of trust and reputation in distributed systems. I also studied some anonymity protocols and their possible extensions to incorporate trust information.

In general, my research centres on modern mathematically grounded approaches to maintain security in distributed systems. In particular, I am interested in using the mathematical tools provided by the probability and information theories to model uncertainty in global networks. This interest covers formalising and using the notion of "computational trust" in computer security, and also modern probabilistic and information theoretic approaches to assess privacy, and quantify information leakage in security protocols.
