I received the Engineer and master’s degrees in Computer Engineering, from the University of Science and Technology, Oran in 1999, and USTHB, Algiers in 2012, respectively. I worked on simulation of circuits during my engineering project and on broadcasting over duty-cycled wireless sensor networks during the master degree. From 2003 to 2015, I have been with a research and development center (CRD) in Algiers and served as a software developer using C language and UNIX-based systems. I participated in developing applications for embedded systems using FPGA cards, as well as implementing wireless sensor MAC protocols for intelmote2 real platform. Currently, I’m preparing my PhD with Dr Djamel DJENOURI in USTHB.
