Short BIO

I am currently a researcher at the Insight Centre for Data Analytics @ National University of Ireland, Galway (Formerly DERI). My PhD tackles the problem of semantic coupling in event based systems and its effect on scalability in large scale heterogeneous environments such as the Internet of Things. Applications of the problem in the smart cities, power management, and water management domains have been among the SFI, Enterprise Ireland, and European projects I have been involved in including DERI Energy, SENSE, and Waternomics. A list of my publications in scientific journals and conferences is found below.

Previously, I had completed a five years Bachelor's degree in Information Technology Engineering, majoring in Software Engineering and Information Systems, at Damascus University, Syria. I have also worked as a teacher assistant at Damascus University where I taught several modules including programming languages, software engineering, and information systems. I worked as a software engineer for two years and have been involved in early training and appraisal process of the Capability Maturity Model Integration (CMMI) of software development process improvement. I have coached the Damascus University team for the Arab and North Africa ACM Collegiate Programming Contest throughout 2007, 2008, and 2009.
