I am a Ph.D. student/ research assistant at the Institute of Computer and Network Engineering at the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany. I obtained both my Engineering Diploma in Industrial Engineering  and my master degree in Information System Techniques from the National Engineering School of Tunis, Tunisia, in 2017. 

My main research interests revolve around the application of machine learning to a variety of networking problems, such as: Detection and Prevention of Jamming Attacks in Optical Networks, DNN Placement and Inference Serving in Edge Computing, Deep Learning for THz Channel Estimation.
