I am a postdoctoral researcher at KTH Royal Institute of Technology working with Prof Karl Henrik Johansson. I earned my PhD with the Cyber-Physical Systems Group under supervision of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Matthias Althoff at Technical University of Munich (TUM). Prior to that, I was a research assistant at the University of California, Los Angles (UCLA).  I got experience as an engineer in Mentor Graphics Egypt and Morpho, Egypt. I received my B.Sc. and M.Sc from Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt in 2010 and 2013, respectively. My current research interests include safety, estimation, privacy, security, and general topics in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

Active Research Project
  1. Secure Estimation And Actuation (SEAC)
  2. Accurate Estimation and Actuation
  3. Homomorphic Signal Processing
  4. Safety and Security in Machine Learning Systems

Past Research Project


  • We are looking for a student interested in Cyclops in order to integrate it with default images as illustrated in (link).

Recent News:

  • Our paper Event-Triggered Diffusion Kalman Filters (link) is accepted in 11th ACM/IEE International Conference on Cyber-Physical Systems (ICCPS 2020 - CPS week) (acceptance rate 24/101 = 23.7%). 

  • The source code of our paper "CryptoImg: Privacy preserving processing over encrypted images" is online (link).

  • We got the first place in grad slam at TUM graduate school competition September 2019.

  • The Presentation for the Final day of Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship 2018 for our proposal TNT (Trusted Notion of Time) can be found at this link (YouTube).

  • We make it again all the way to the Qualcomm Innovation Fellowship (QlnF) Finalist 2018 (UCLA Newsroom).
