Ala'a Al-Momani

Ala'a holds a M.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering focusing on wireless communication and security. Generally, Ala'a enjoys working on, and conducting research in, topics related to cybersecurity, privacy, and machine learning while addressing potential intersections among them. Previously, he worked on physical layer security, several VANET-related aspects, misbehaviour detection, machine learning, and wireless communication. Recently, his research has been focusing on privacy engineering and privacy enhancing technologies, security enclaves, and privacy-preserving machine learning.
