Adel El-Atawy

Adel is a software engineer at Google and the technical lead of GMS (Google message security team, aka Postini). He received his BSc and MSc from Alexandria University, Egypt in 2000 and 2003, and his PhD from DePaul University in Chicago in 2010. His research areas include network policy/configuration model verification, and the utilization of network behavior in security applications. He has publications in several areas from traffic filtering optimization, policy verification, and covert communication, to bandwidth management with game theoretical models, and traffic visualization techniques.
