Dr.-Ing. Hani Salah

Senior Researcher

Since July 2018, I work as researcher at the Deutsche Telekom Chair of Communication Networks, TU Dresden (Dresden, Germany), led by Prof. Dr. Frank Fitzek.

Between September 2016 and June 2018, I worked as lecturer and researcher at Palestine Polytechnic University (Hebron, Palestine). Previously, I worked as R&D employee at the TU Darmstadt (Darmstadt, Germany) and flexOptix GmbH (Dietzenbach, Germany) for 17 months (till August 2016). Before that, I worked as research assistant at TU Darmstadt for four years, and as lecturer and technical assistant at Palestine Polytechnic University for about 5.5 years in total.

I obtained a PhD degree in computer science from TU Darmstadt in 2015, specialized in measurements, performance, and security of large-scale distributed systems, under supervision of Prof. Dr. Thorsten Strufe. Before that, I obtained a Master of Science degree in Internetworking from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Sweden and a Bachelor degree in Computer Systems Engineering from Palestine Polytechnic University.

My current research interests lie in the areas of distributed systems and modern networking technologies (SDN, NFV, ICN) with emphasis on their performance, security, and monitoring (with privacy preservation).
