Biography

Dr Issam Jabri received his Ph.D. degree in computer engineering from the university Henri Poincaré (Nancy 1), Nancy, France, in 2008. He received his Engineering degree and Master degree in computer engineering- industrial informatics respectively from the University of Monastir (Tunisia) and University of Sfax (Tunisia) in 2000 and 2003.

He is currently working as Assistant Professor at computer engineering department, college of engineering and architecture, Al Yamamah University, KSA.

He has been Assistant Professor at communications and networks department, National Engineers School of Gabes, Gabes University from 2005 to 2016.

He is a co-founding member of Hatem Bettaher IResCoMath research unit (Gabes University). His research interests lie in the field of wireless networking, vehicular communications, Internet of Things (IoT), multimedia communi- cations, pattern recognition, and computer vision applications.

He is the author of  dozens of research papers published in high quality journals (such as IEEE Communication Letters, Elsevier Ad hoc Networks)  and conferences (such as IEEE GlobeCom).
