I had my BS in Information System at the Lebanese University in Tripoli, Lebanon in 2005. I obtained my Master's degree in 2006 at Blaise Pascal University (Clermont 2) at Clermont-Ferrand, France. I obtained my PhD in computer science in december 2009. The PhD thesis was under the supervision of professor Michel MISSON at the LIMOS laboratory at Blaise Pascal Univeristy. It was funded by the ANR (French National Research Agency) and it was part of project OCARI. I obtained my Habilitation degree in Networking and Telecommunicaitons in 2016.
The PhD thesis 2007-2009
I carried out my PhD thesis at the LIMOS laboratory under the supervision of Professor Michel MISSON. The thesis aimed at proposing, specifying and evaluating a medium access protocol for wireless sensor networks that ensures both energy efficiency and determinism. This protocol is called MaCARI.
Abstract of the PhD thesis
A wireless sensor network is a set of small communicating nodes that consume very little energy. Some applications require wireless sensor networks to be energy efficient to extend the lifetime of the network, others require deterministic behavior that usually results in bounded end-to-end delays and/or frame loss rate below a critical threshold. To save significant energy, an entity must be put into sleep mode. During this period, it will be inactive thus unable to participate in network activity. The use of sleep periods is a handicap for the deterministic aspect as well as for the respect of delay constraints.
The work of this thesis focuses on the specification, development and evaluation in different forms of a deterministic medium access mechanism adaptable to the quality of service requirements such as the absence of collisions and the guarantee of a bounded endtoend delay, while maintaining low energy consumption behavior. The proposed solution is based on temporal segmentation of the activities of the nodes, multi-hop synchronization and service differentiation based on two routing strategies.
