I am working as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACCS)- University of New South Wales (UNSW) Canberra, in the field of cyber security, specifically exploit development/defence, network Security, intrusion detection systems using statistical, data mining and machine learning, artificial intelligence algorithms. I am interested in designing and developing these systems to the Industry 4.0 technology for identifying malicious activities from cloud computing, fog computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and industrial control systems over virtual machines and physical systems including Unmanned Autonomous Vehicles (UAVs) and Unmanned Underwater Vehicles (UUVs).

I started my academic career as Assistant Lecturer at the faculty of Computers and Information-Helwan University, Egypt from 2011 till 2014. In 2012, I also taught network security and handling big data at the minister of interior-Egypt for professional officers. Moreover, I worked as senior Developer in the development field for developing web and desktop applications at the company of Acme-Saico, Egypt.

I completed my bachelor and master degrees in computer science in 2009 and 2014, respectively, from the faculty of Computers and Information - Helwan University, Egypt. My master topic was in the Bioinformatic field for correlating HIV-1 Human protein-protein interactions using data mining mechanisms. In 2017, I completed my PhD degree in computer science from the University of New South Wales-Canberra. My PhD topic was in the field of cyber security for designing "an online and reliable statistical anomaly detection framework for dealing with large and high-speed network traffic". I am acting as a peer reviewer for several conferences and journals such as IEEE Transactions on Information Forensics and Security and Journal of Network and Computer Applications, which are interested in cyber security, statistics and machine learning techniques.


My Expertise

I am interested in research and development areas of the cyber security field using the methodologies of statistics, data mining and machine learning artificial intelligence techniques. His topics of research include:

  • Exploit development/defence;
  • Host and network Intrusion detection;
  • Network security;
  • Statistical and machine learning algorithms;
  • Industry 4.0 technology including cloud and fog computing, cyber physical systems, SCADA systems, and Internet of things.
