Nader Bouacida obtained his Master's degree in Computer Science under the supervision of Professor Basem Shihada at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in 2011. Currently, he is a Ph.D. student at the University of California - Davis.

Master's Thesis title: "Towards Controlling Latency in Wireless Networks".

Research Interests

Nader's research interests included Wireless Full-duplex communications, buffer management and developing next-generation wireless network technologies. 


The expansion of wireless usage in different applications has resulted in a tremendous increase in energy consumption and this left a significant environmental effect.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging paradigm in computer networking that allows a logically centralized software program to control the behavior of the entire network.
