Professor , Department of Applied Sciences,
University of Quebec in Chicoutimi.
In August 2018, I joined as an Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Sciences (DSA), at the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi, Québec, Canada.
I have completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering with specialization in the « Wireless Networks », from Laval University, Quebec City, under the supervision of Prof. Paul Fortier and Prof. Pierre-Martin Tardif.
I was a post-doctoral fellow/research associate and member
Wireless Heterogeneous Sensor Networks in the e-Society Project (WiSense) at the University of Ottawa under Professor Hussein .T. Mouftah.
I was a Technology Advisor for MRS (Mine Radio Systems, now Pyott-Boone Electronics) company between 2010-2011, working on RFID and IoT-based solutions for the mining industry. From 2012 to 2014, I worked as a Senior System Engineer at BLiNQ Networks, Ottawa, in the area of modeling, analysis, and optimization of Sub-6 GHz Mobile Backhaul Networks (WiMAX, LTE). From 2014 to 2018, I worked as Manager of Next-Generation Network (NGN) /VoIP & Emerging Technologies at ItechCenter Labs, Bell Canada.
I am an Editorial Board Member of MDPI Technologies — Open Access Journal. In addition, I am serving as a Guest Editor for several well-reputed journals (please refer to my Communication page for more details). I have served as a Lead Guest Editor for the Journal of Sensors special issue on « Embedded Systems for Mobile Sensors » and Conference Program Chair for HCIS 2021. I am a Senior Member of the IEEE; A member of the IEEE Communication Society (ComSoc), and IEEE-Quebec Section. I am a Member of the OIQ and IEEE Canadian Humanitarian Initiatives Committee (HIC).
