Sanaa Sharafeddine

Sanaa Sharafeddine is an associate professor of computer science. She received her BE and ME in Computer and Communications Engineering from the American University of Beirut (AUB) in 1999 and 2001, respectively. She received her doctoral degree in Communications Engineering from Munich University of Technology (TUM) in 2005, in collaboration with Siemens AG research labs in Munich. Her research interests include lightweight solutions for mobile devices, wireless networking, cooperative communications, multimedia services, and unmanned aerial vehicles.

She is an area editor for Elsevier Ad Hoc Networks journal and associate editor for IEEE Access. She received the International Rising Talent award in 2015 and the L’Oreal-UNESCO Pan-Arab Regional Fellowship award in 2013. She is also the recipient of Charlie Korban award for outstanding graduate student in the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at AUB in 2001, and Siemens Youth and Knowledge Scholarship for highly distinguished students during 2002-2005. She was elevated to the grade of senior IEEE member in 2010.
