About me: 
Ahmed Masri was born in Nablus (Palestine) on July 10, 1984. He obtained his B.Sc degree in computer engineering, from College of Engineering at An-Najah National University, with GPA 90.4% in May 2007. Then he graduated from the 2nd level specializing master "Wireless Systems and Related Technologies" from Politecnico di Torino with summa cum laude in Sep 2008.
During June 2008 - December 2008, he had an internship at Telecom Italia Labs-Torino, He worked as a researcher and software "Simulator" developer in the field of LTE-EUTRAN (Inter Cell Interference Coordination).
He started his Ph.D study in telecommunication engineering since January 2009, in the Politecnico di Torino under the supervision of Prof. Carla Fabiana Chiasserini. Moreover, he also joined the Telecommunication Networks Group (TNG) at the dipartimento di elettronica as a PhD student.
During March 2011 - October 2011, he was a visiting researcher at Aalto University in Finland.
He obtained his Ph.D degree in Telecommunication with thesis title "Design and Performance Evaluation of Cognitive Radio Networks" in Feb/2012. He served also as a Technical Program Committee member for ISWTA 2012 and IEEE PIMRC 2012, on i) PIMRC2012-Track 1: PHY and Fundamentals and ii) PIMRC2012-Track 2: MAC and Cross-Layer Design
Currently, he is working as an Assistant professor - Communication Engineering Department - An Najah National University
