Dr. Ahmed KHATTAB - EECE2002 and Assistant Professor at the EECE Department of Cairo University - has recently coauthored a new book entitled: RFID Security: A Lightweight Paradigm.

Dr. Khattab received his B.Sc. (honors) and M.Sc. in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Cairo University, Egypt, in 2002 and 2004, respectively. He received the Master of Electrical Engineering degree from Rice University, and his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA, in 2009 and 2011, respectively. He is currently an Assistant Professor at the Electronics and Electrical Communications Engineering Department in Cairo University. He is also adjunct Assistant Professor in the American University in Cairo (AUC). His research interests are in the broad areas of wireless networking with emphasis on the cross-layer design, optimization, and implementation of PHY/MAC protocols for high performance wireless networks. His research experience ranges from wireless sensor networks and the Internet of Things (IoT) to distributed opportunistic spectrum management for cognitive radio networks, carrier-sense multiple access for multi-antenna 802.11 networks, resource management and scheduling in 4G/5G wireless networks, and vehicular networks. He has authored/co-authored two books, a patent application and over 40 journal and conference publications. He serves as a reviewer in many IEEE transactions, journals and conferences, and is a member of the technical committee of several prestigious conferences such as IEEE Globecom, IEEE ICCCN, and IEEE WFIoT. He won the best student paper award from the IEEE Computer Society at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette chapter in 2010 and in 2011, and was a finalist in the best paper award contest in the IEEE ICCCN 2008 conference.

The EECE Department is proud to have such an enthusiastic and energetic Staff member to make a remarkable contribution in a highly challenging field of Electronics and Electrical Communications. We wish him continued success and everlasting contributions.
