Dr Romdhani is a full time and permanent Associate Professor in networking at Edinburgh Napier University since June 2005. He was awarded his PhD from the University of Technology of Compiegne (UTC), France in May 2005. He holds also an engineering and a Master degree in networking obtained respectively in 1998 and 2001 from the National School of Computing (ENSI, Tunisia) and Louis Pasteur University (ULP, France). While working toward his PhD, he has worked extensively with Motorola Research Labs in Paris as a research engineer on the investigation of the deployment of IP multicast with mobile networks from 2001 to 2005.  This work has led to two successful worldwide patents in association with Motorola and a third UK patent assigned to Edinburgh Napier University in 2012. His research interests include multicast communication, mobile networks, quality of service and security. He has published at international level and his work is used as a basis for Multimob IETF working group. Dr Romdhani has served on the program committee of several IEEE and ACM international conferences and has peer-reviewed many journal papers including the Wiley Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing journal, the Elsevier Computer Communications Journal, etc.   Dr Romdhani is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and Member of the IEEE Computer Society.
