Dr Mohamed M. E. A. Mahmoud received PhD degree from the University of Waterloo (Ontario - Canada),
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, in April 2011 under the supervision of Prof. Xuemin (Sherman) Shen.
The title of his thesis is “Efficient packet-drop thwarting and user-privacy preserving protocols for multi-hop wireless
From May 2011 to July 2012, he was a postdoctoral fellow in the Broadband Communications Research group, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Waterloo, with Prof. Sherman (Xuemin) Shen and Prof. Xiaodong Lin (University of Ontario Institute of Technology).
Dr. Mahmoud is currently a visiting professor in University of Waterloo and postdoctoral fellow in Computer Science - Ryerson University under the supervision of Prof. Jelena Misic .
Dr. Mahmoud is the first author for more than twenty papers published in major IEEE conferences and transactions. He won the prestigious Best Paper Award (international award) from IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC’09), Dresden, Germany, 2009. This award was one of only fourteen given, among 1046 papers presented and more than 3000 submitted, and was the sole award for the Communication and Information Systems Security Symposium. He also has received the Distinguished Teaching Assistantship Award granted to the best teaching assistant in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, based on evaluations by students.
