Graduated in the field of computer science and mathematics from the University of Constantine 2 in Algeria [UC2] (previously known as Mentouri). I'm now a doctoral student in the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research [DIRO] at the University of Montreal in Canada, where I'm investigating privacy-preserving approaches
for location-based services. My research interests mainly include computer and data security, information privacy, mobile location services, and the adaptation of AI methods and algorithms to resolve privacy and security issues.
