Assistant Professor

Detailed Curriculum Vitae
   
Mounib Khanafer received the B.Sc degree (with honors) in Electrical Engineering from Kuwait University, Kuwait, in 2002, and the M.A.Sc. in Electrical Engineering and the PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Ottawa, Ottawa, Canada in 2007 and 2012, respectively. He is the recipient of two University of Ottawa Admission Scholarships (Masters-2003 and PhD- 2008). He is the joint recipient of two Best Poster Awards. He is the recipient of the University of Ottawa Deans Scholarship for completing the PhD in a timely fashion (2012). He has three years of industrial experience at Nortel Networks. He worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of Ottawa where he conducted research in the area of wireless sensor networks (2012-2013). His main area of research is in designing and optimizing MAC protocols in wireless sensor networks. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the American University of Kuwait, Kuwait.
