Personal Bio:

I'm an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at the Louisiana State University in Shreveport (LSUS). I am also the Cisco Academy Director for the Computer Science program and the leader of the Advanced Networking Lab. 


My current research focuses on real time big data stream processing using Apache Storm platform which is currently the most known opensource distributed platform for real-time big data processing. 


Real-time big data streaming allows continuous monitoring of situations where a fast and accurate reaction has a significant effect to address critical conditions. Our proposed platform can be applied in different situations to make appropriate response when real-time data processing is important as well as study behavior of human physiological data or processing real-time weather information. 


Beside my research, I have tried to enhance and improve learning contents taught Department of Computer Science by developing new course materials in fundamental courses such as database and computer networking. To achieve this goal, I have joined LSUS as an educational institution member of the Oracle Academy and cover “introduction to database system” course through Oracle Academy materials. I have also developed a new curriculum in Network Security concentration by adding five new courses in NS concentration to prepare students with a combination of deep theory knowledge and deep practical experience. 




Patent Title: Proactive Controller for Failure Resiliency In Communication Networks

Abstract: Network devices and systems relating to prevention of large-scale network failure and determining a probability of a large-scale network failure for a network. The network devices may control rerouting of network traffic from failed network paths to preventative paths with probabilities of failure below determined thresholds. The network devices monitor and process real time data for dynamic and proactive rerouting when large-scale network failure occurs or is likely to occur.

US patent No. 9,590,892, Issued: March 7, 2017.
