Dr. Sameh El-Ansary

Dr. Sameh El-Ansary is an Assistant Professor of CIT at Nile University since 2007. 
He received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Computer Science from the American University in Cairo, Egypt, in 1998 and 2000 respectively. He received his Ph.Lic. and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden in 2003 and 2005 respectively. Since 2000, he has been working as a researcher at the Swedish Institute of Computer Science. He conducted research in collaborative development of ontologies, virtual machines for mobile devices and P2P systems with a focus on structured overlays (aka Distributed Hash Tables (DHTs)). In this field, his contributions include a framework for structured overlays based on distributed k-ary search, a system based on this framework, an optima broadcast algorithm for DHTs. He also collaborated with physicists in an attempt to use physics techniques in the analysis of large-scale distributed systems. His current research interest is scalable content distribution with a focus on Peer-To-Peer live streaming.
