Ali received the Bachelor in communication engineering from the University of Alexandria, Egypt 2002. He got his master degree in fiber optics field in 2006 from the same university under supervision of Prof: Ali Okaz, Prof. Moustafa Hussien, and Dr: Kesk.
Ali is interesting in antenna design and circuit design in RF fields. Prior to joining Ph.D in University of Bridgeport Ali worked as a demonstrator in Alexandria University for many communication courses from 2002 to 2006.
He works in a project funded by US Army, to control the motion of a small projectile using two small stepper motors. Also, Ali has designed a microstip printed antenna works at 2.4 GHz and gives a high performance.
Syed S. Rizvi, Ph.D.
Assistant Professor, ECPI College of Technology
Dr. Rizvi graduated with a Ph.D. degree in Computer Engineering from University of Bridgeport, Bridgeport, CT in December 2010. He received a B.S. in Computer Engineering from Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology and an M.S. in Computer Engineering from Old Dominion University in 2001 and 2005, respectively. He has been working as a Permanent Faculty in EET department of ECPI College of Technology, Norfolk, VA since January 2010.
