Sameh Sorour Assistant Professor


Sameh Sorour is an assistant professor in the area of computer, network and communication engineering. He received his bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering from Alexandria University in 2002 and 2006, respectively. He then completed his doctorate in electrical and computer engineering from University of Toronto in 2011. After his doctorate, he worked as an industrial researcher at Siradel Canada based on a MITACS industrial fellowship. He then worked for a year as a research fellow at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). In 2013, he joined King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM) as an assistant professor before moving to University of Idaho in 2016.‬‬‬‬

Sameh is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics ‬‬‬‬Engineers (IEEE), with more than 50 publications in IEEE refereed journals and conferences. During his research career, he worked closely with several industrial and governmental institutions, such as LG Electronics Korea, the European Space Agency, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and Siradel Canada. His research interests lie in the board disciplines of computer networking and communication engineering, with strong emphasis on the areas of network coding, device-to-device communications, internet of things (IoT) and its applications, cloud storage networks, femtocaching and fog networking, management of dense cellular networks and indoor positioning. He is also interested in using diverse mathematical tools (e.g. graph theory, stochastic modeling and optimization, game theory, machine learning, stochastic geometry, … etc) in modeling, optimizing and smartening the operation of various engineering systems, such as transportation networks, power grids, charging of plug-in electric vehicles and e-health services.
