I am a lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin (UTCS). I received my PhD degree from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2005. My advisors were Steve Roach and J Strother Moore (from UTCS). Before joining UTCS, I worked as an Assistant/Associate Professor of Computer Science at Al-Hussein Bin Talal University in Jordan between 2005 and 2011 and a Visiting Associate Professor at Taif University in Saudi Arabia between 2011 and 2015. In addition to teaching, I have served in leading administrative positions including the Dean of the College of Information Technology and the Director of the Information Technology Center.
