John Tadrous



John Tadrous is an assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering at Gonzaga University. He received his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the ECE Department at The Ohio State University in 2014, MSc degree in wireless communications from the Center of Information Technology at Nile University in 2010, and BSc degree from the EE Department at Cairo University in 2008. Between 2014 and 2016 he was a post-doctoral research associate with the ECE Department at Rice University.
His research interests include Modeling and analysis of human behavior's impact on data networks in various timescales from seconds to hours. This research spans interdisciplinary fields of human behavioral science, economics, machine learning, and big data analytics. He also works on the design of optimal resource allocation strategies that harness developed human behavioral models for maximal network welfare. This research utilizes information theory, network optimization and control, and smart-data pricing. Dr. Tadrous' served a technical program committee member for several conferences such as Mohihoc and WiOpt. He also served as a peer reviewer for a multitude of scientific conferences and journals.
