Associate Professor of Software Engineering

Jordan University of Science and Technology

I am an associate professor at Jordan University of Science and Technology in the Software Engineering department. I received my PhD in Software Engineering from the University of Montpellier (UM-LIRMM / CNRS) in 2016. I was working on the modernization and migration of Object-oriented applications to Component-based (CBSE) and Service-oriented Architecture (SOA). After that, I spent one year at IMT Atlantique & INRIA as a postdoc. During my postdoc, I worked on the CoMe4ACloud project (Constraints and Model Engineering for Autonomic Clouds) to provide an end-to-end solution for autonomic Cloud services. Finally, I had a permanent position at Berger-Levrault as Research and Development Engineer. I was working on the modernization of web applications to Software as a Service (SaaS). As a result, I have published many high-quality papers in the domain of software engineering, software security, artificially intelligent, and cloud computing. At the level of industry, I have more than six years of experience in the industry of software development and programming. I am a professional in Java, android, and I have a good experience in other script and programming languages like Qiskit, Python, Angular, C++, Xtext, CSS, etc. I have developed many applications over mobile, desktop, and server.

Accomplish­ments

Basics of quantum information
Quantum computing has become a global conversation, and whether in media or movies, fact or fiction, the excitement for quantum is growing every day. This free course covers quantum information at a detailed mathematical level. Join John Watrous as you explore quantum information, quantum algorithms, and how to understand and mitigate noise.

Projects

CoMe4ACloud
CoMe4ACloud is an Atlanstic2020 funded project whose objective is to provide an end-to-end solution for autonomic Cloud services. To that end, we rely on techniques of Constraint Programming so as a decision-making tool and Model-driven Engineering to ease the automatic generation of the so-called autonomic managers as well as their communication with the managed system. For further information, please read the project description.

CERN/CMS Data Curation
Extracting the metadata (in particular the provenance chain) long after the data production has happened, can be problematic because of changes in the different storage systems and their interfaces.
