I received my Ph.D. degree from Trinity College Dublin in 2010 where I carried out my research at the Distributed Systems Group. My Ph.D. was a specialization in urban traffic control optimization using distributed reinforcement learning. I also hold an M.Sc. in dependable computer systems from Chalmers tekniska högskola in Göteborg besides a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Jordan university of science and technology.

I am currently an R&D SW Engineer at Technicolor in Belgium.
