Mohammed Gharib

Ph.D. Lecturer


Mohammed Gharib is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, USA, under the supervision of Prof. Soudeh Ghorbani. He held the same position at the School of Computer Science, Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), Tehran, Iran, from 205 t0 2018. He was also a senior lecturer at the Department of Computer Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran, between 2010 t0 2018. Mohammed received the B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Engineering, Baghdad University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq, in 2007, and both M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Computer Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran in 2009 and 2015, respectively. In September 2010, he joined performance and dependability laboratory (PDL) where he had been working toward his Ph.D. degree, supervised by prof. Ali Movaghar, in Department of Computer Engineering at Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. He was the head of wireless networks and also content delivery networks (CDN) groups in PDL where they had been working on the mobility, routing and the security of different wireless networks and CDN, between 2010 to 2018. During the year 2014, Mohammed had a six months visiting research program, supervised by prof. Homayoun Yousefi’zadeh, in California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, University of California Irvine, Irvine, California, US. His main research interest is performance evaluation of computer networks including wireless networks, cloud networks, data center networking, and their security aspects.
