Profile

Brief Biography

Karim G. Seddik received his PhD from the University of Maryland College Park in 2008. Seddik is a professor in the Electronics and Communications Engineering Department at the American University in Cairo (AUC), Egypt. He is also the associate dean for graduate studies and research at the School of Sciences and Engineering (SSE) at AUC. Before joining AUC, he was an assistant professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at Alexandria University, Egypt. Seddik received the Bachelor of Science; with the highest honors and MS degrees in electrical engineering from Alexandria University, Alexandria, Egypt, in 2001 and 2004, respectively. He received his PhD degree at the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, University of Maryland, College Park 2008. His current main research interests focus on the applications of ML tools in the context of wireless communication networks as well as some emerging wireless technologies (Intelligent Reflecting Surfaces, Back-scattered Communications).

He is the recipient of the American University in Cairo Faculty Merit Award for Excellence in Research and Creative Endeavors in 2021. He is a recipient of the State Encouragement Award in 2016 and the State Medal of Excellence in 2017. He is a recipient of the certificate of honor from the Egyptian President for being ranked first among all departments in the College of Engineering, Alexandria University in 2002. He received the Graduate School Fellowship from the University of Maryland in 2004 and 2005, and the Future Faculty Program Fellowship from the University of Maryland in 2007. He also co-authored a conference paper that received the best conference paper award from the IEEE communication society technical committee on green communications and computing in 2019.
