CV

Dr. Otrok holds an associate professor position in the department of ECE at Khalifa University. Also, he holds an affiliate assistant professor in the Concordia Institute for Information Systems Engineering at Concordia University. He received his Ph.D. in ECE from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. His PhD thesis was on “Intrusion Detection System (IDS)” using Game Theory and Mechanism Design. He worked as a postdoctoral on “Security issues and resource management for virtual private networks” at École de technologie supérieure (ETS). He has co-supervised to accomplishment one Post-Doctoral and one PhD at the ETS, and five master students at Khalifa University, Lebanese American University (LAU), and Concordia University. He also co-chaired two conferences. Moreover, he is a TPC member of several prestigious conferences and reviewer of several highly ranked journals. Also, he ismember of several admin and University committees and founder of several contests. Additionally, he was the organization chair of several national and regional contests.
