Basel Alomair joined the Computer Research Institute (CRI) at King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) in 2011. His doctoral dissertation work was in the area of securing wireless and computer networks. His main research interests are Information Security, Wireless Security, and Applied Cryptography. In particular, he is interested in the design of computationally-efficient and resource-efficient algorithms and protocols that meet the demand of today's communication networks. His PhD dissertation was recognized by the IEEE Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing (TC-FTC) and the IFIP Working Group on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance (WG 10.4) through the 2010 IEEE/IFIP William C. Carter Award. He is also the recipient of the 2011 UWEE Outstanding Research Award, and the University of Washington's Center for Information Assurance and Cybersecurity (UW CIAC) Disdtinguished Dissertation Award.
Awarded by the University of Washington's Center for Information Assurance and Cybersecurity for fundamental contributions in the field of Radio Frequency Identification.
The award is presented annually to recognize an individual (a research scientist, a postdoctoral fellow, or a graduate student) who demonstrated an outstanding contribution to research in Electrical Engineering at the University of Washington.
The William C. Carter Award has been presented annually since 1997 to recognize an individual who has made a significant contribution to the field of dependable computing through his or her graduate dissertation research. The award is sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Fault-Tolerant Computing (TC-FTC) and the IFIP Working Group on Dependable Computing and Fault Tolerance (WG 10.4).
