I'm a professor-researcher since 2016 at ENSA Khouribga, USMS, Morocco.
I held a PhD. double-degree in 2014 : in Computer Science from Blaise Pascal University, France; and in Telecommunications & Networking from Chouaib Doukkali University, Morocco.
I received the B.S. degree in Physics (awarded asof first in university) and M.S. degree in Telecommunications & Networking (awarded as first in Master’s class “dux”) from the Chouaib Doukkali University (Morocco) in 2006 and 2009, respectively. My research interests are in the area of modeling, analysis and optimization of the communication protocols dedicated to wireless sensor networks, IoT/WoT and SDN.
