Profile

Brief Biography

Yasser Gadallah is currently an associate professor (tenured) at the Department of Electronics and Communications Engineering at The American University in Cairo. He earned his PhD from Carleton University in Canada, his MSc from Queen’s University in Canada and his BSc from Cairo University in Egypt, all in electrical engineering.

Prior to joining AUC, Yasser was an associate professor with the Electronics and Communications Engineering Department at Misr International University, Cairo, Egypt. Earlier, he was an assistant professor of networking systems at the College of Information Technology at United Arab Emirates University. Before joining UAE University, he was a research scientist with the Communications Research Centre (CRC) in Ottawa, Canada, where he conducted research in the area of wireless sensor networks. He has also worked for many years in the networking and telecommunications industry, and as a software development manager with Cisco Systems for several years, where he was involved in numerous R&D projects, which resulted in the introduction of several high-profile Cisco products. In addition to his work with Cisco, Yasser also worked with Nortel Networks as a software project leader and prior to that as a software designer. He is a senior member of IEEE and his biography appears in Marquis Who’s Who in the World in 2010. He has served as an organizer, a technical program committee member and a reviewer for several international conferences and journals. He has many technical and scientific publications in the networking, communications and IT fields.
