I am a second year Ph.D. candidate at ETH Zürich, advised by Laurent Vanbever. My research looks at how to make networks more programmable and how to verify the correctness of programmable networks.
Before joining ETH Zürich, I had a great privilege to work with Prof. Scott Shenker, where I worked on designing next architecture of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and building systems for troubleshooting existing SDN controllers.
I received a master degree in Computer Science from University of Delaware in 2011 and a bachelor degree in Computer Engineering from Islamic University of Gaza in 2008.
