Ph.D. Candidate
Massachusetts Institute of Technology


I am a third year graduate student in EECS at MIT. I received my Bachelor of Engineering in Computer and Communications Engineering (and minor in Mathematics) from AUB in 2011 and my Masters of Science in Computer Science from MIT in 2013.

My research supervisor is Prof. Dina Katabi at CSAIL. I am part of NETMIT, the Network group at MIT, and Wireless@MIT. I am broadly interested in Computer Networks and Wireless Communications.
