Mohammed Gharib

Ph.D. Lecturer


Mohammed Gharib is currently a postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Computer Scince, Institute for Research in Fundamental Sciences (IPM), Tehran, Iran. He is also a Ph.D. lecturer in the Department of Computer Engineering, Sharif University of Technology, Tehran, Iran. Mohammed received the B.S. degree from the Department of Computer Engineering, Baghdad University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq, in 2007. He also received his 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 is the head of mobile ad hoc network (MANET) and also named data networking (NDN) groups in PDL where they work on the mobility, routing and the security of both MANET and NDN. During the year 2014, Mohammed had been 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 research interests include mobile ad hoc networks, wireless sensor networks, named data networking, peer-to-peer networks and their security aspects.
