About Me

 

Abdallah Khreishah received his Ph.D and M.S. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Purdue University in 2010 and 2006, respectively. Prior to that, he received his B.S. degree with honors from Jordan University of Science & Technology in 2004. Immediately after finishing his Ph.D, Abdallah joined the Department of Computer & Information Sciences at Temple University as an Assistant Professor.

During the last year of his Ph.D, he worked with NEESCOM. In Fall 2012, he joined the ECE department of NJIT as an Assistant Professor. Abdallah is an active researcher. His research spans the areas of network coding, wireless networks, congestion control, cloud computing, network security, and database systems for large projects. His research projects are funded by the National Science Foundation and the UAE Research Foundation.
