Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering


Abdallah Khreishah, PhD, has been appointed to the faculty of NJIT’s Newark College of Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as an assistant professor. Khreishah’s research looks at the latest work in computer networking with an emphasis on improving the flow of information. His most recent research focuses on what electrical engineers call “mobihoc,” the ever-expanding world of mobile networking. He previously was an assistant professor in the department of computer and information sciences at Temple University.

The National Science Foundation, The Amazon Company, and the United Arab Emerates Research Foundation fund Khreishah’s projects. His research focus includes network coding, wireless systems, congestion control, cloud computing, network security, and database systems for large projects.

His most recent paper, “Distributed Network Coding Based Opportunistic Routing for Multicast,” was presented in June of 2012 at the Proceedings of the 13th ACM International Symposium on Mobile Ad Hoc (Mobihoc) Networking and Computing at Hilton Head, SC. Last fall, he presented “Polynomial Time and Provably Efficient Network Coding Scheme for Lossy Wireless Networks,” at the Proceedings of the 8th IEEE International Conference on Mobile Ad-hoc and Sensor Systems (MASS).
