Personal profile

Research interests

I have a keen interest in these research areas which are Software Defined Networks (SDN), Cybersecurity, Communication Networks, 5G and Machine Learning. I have published several papers and presented in a number of conferences in respect to these research areas.

I occasionally review papers for conferences as a contribution to the larger academic community. I am open to collaboration in research and knowledge exchange projects.
