"If I can find the researcher who is able to answer all his open questions alone!, then I succeed to find the best researcher ever." Amr Alanwar (15 May 2018)

I am a Ph.D. candidate advised by Prof Mani Srivastava
as a member of the Networked and Embedded System Lab (NESL). I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 2010 and 2013. Prior to joining UCLA, I spent eight months in the REAL-TIME EMBEDDED SOFTWARE GROUP at University of Waterloo under supervision of Prof Sebastian Fischmeister. Before that, I was working as engineer in Mentor Graphics Egypt and Morpho, Egypt. My current research interests include: Privacy, Security, Localization, Time Synchronization,  and general topics in Cyber Physical Systems (CPS).
