I'm currently a PostDoc researcher in the Computer Systems Laboratory (CSL) at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). I received my PhD from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden, in November 2012.

Earlier, I completed my B.Sc. and M.Sc. at the Faculty of Computer and Information Sciences (FCIS), Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt.

My research interests include large-scale distributed systems, cloud computing, multi-clouds, autonomic computing, big data, distributed algorithms, peer-to-peer systems. Currently, my research is focused on automating the elasticity control of Cloud-based elastic storage services using techniques such as control theory and machine learning. I’m also working on issues related to multi-Clouds and multi-cloud data management.
