Michael Khader, PhD, is an associate professor and the coordinator for telecommunications management technology in the department of engineering technology at New Jersey Institute of Technology. His research interests focus on multi-criteria decision modeling and fuzzy decision support systems; modeling with queueing systems; distance learning, especially finding a solution to teach engineering laboratory coursework in a distance learning setting; web access for remote sensing; fuzzy pattern recognition; medical instrumentation and performance modeling of telecom systems.
Khader has worked for more than 14 years either on the engineering staff or as a consultant for Bell Labs, Lucent Technology, Allied Signal, and Harris Corporation. In those companies, he has filled positions from senior engineer to project manager or developer.
Among his awards are: Lucent Technology, First Requirements’ Team to Introduce Multimedia Conferencing; the International Association of Telecom’s Best Embedded Telecom System; and Walden University, Best Knowledge Area Module (2007).
Fuzzy Hierarchical Decision Modeling was re-issued by Lambert Publishing Company in a soft-bound text. The book, originally published in 2009 by Walden University, focuses on applying decision modeling rooted in fuzzy theory and hierarchical analysis to complex problems in networks’ design and acquisition.
He received his doctorate from Walden University, his master's degree in computer science from Stevens Institute of Technology, and two bachelor's degrees from Cairo University and Polytechnic Institute of New York.
