Objective: To secure a promising position that offers both a challenge and a good opportunity for growth.

Personal Data:
Date of Birth: March 26, 1975
Place of Birth: Qatana, Syria
Nationality: Syrian & Lebanese
Marital Status: Single Male

Bachelor of Science in Electronics Engineering, Concentration of Telecommunication Engineering (2000), Damascus University. Damascus, Syria.
Note: Ranked second among the graduates of the academic year 1999 -2000.

Master of Engineering, Computer and Communications Engineering (CCE). Thesis in Digital Image Processing. Date of graduation: June 2004, American University of Beirut A.U.B. Beirut, Lebanon.

Related Skills:

Hardware: Z80 Microprocessor, Intel 8085 Microprocessor, Analog Design, Digital Design, RF Design, Digital signal processing, Digital image processing.

Design Tools: Function generator, oscilloscope, Digital voltmeters, and logic analyzer.

Operating System:
MSDOS, Microsoft Windows, Windows NT.
Programming Language: FORTRAN, PASCAL, Assembly
General:Visio Technical

Fluent in Arabic and English.

Undergraduate Projects:

Function generator design: Generating sinusoidal, triangular and rectangular small signals using digital techniques.

Ultrasonic guiding device for the Blind: The device used ultrasonic transmitters and receivers aided with the 8031 Intel processor to perform a desired algorithm. The program was written in assembly language and stored in an external EPROM chip. The project provided a clear path for the user by producing an audible signal.

Graduate Projects:

Digital signal processing: Musical sound processing: Designing filters and doing all the needed simulations using MATLAB to see the frequency response, gain response and the pole-zero plot of these filters. The aim of this project is to design filters able to generate single echo, multiple echoes or infinite number of echoes for the original direct sound (input of the filter). The project included also all the needed simulations for designing comb filters, teeth filters, first order filters and shelving filters, second order filters and equalizers and high order equalizers.

Digital Image Processing: Designed an algorithm to trace the boundary of an object in a digital image, using MATLAB and then displaying the contour.

Thesis: Boundary Extraction Methods for Segmentation, Representation and Description in Digital Image Processing. The research concentrated on showing the advantages of the four-neighbor connectivity approach, which is used to trace the contour of objects, over the eight-neighbor connectivity approach in terms of the chain code's efficiency and the compression ratio that can be achieved. Another boundary extraction method using morphological operations was developed in the research.
