Personal Overview

Dr. Khaled Ali Slhoub (pronounced Sal-houb) is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering and Sciences at Florida Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Florida Institute of Technology in the USA, where his research was on developing a standard framework for formalizing the analysis process of agent-based systems. Dr. Slhoub obtained his M.Sc. from the University of New Brunswick in Canada and his B.Sc. from Benghazi University in Libya. His main research interests are software engineering (software requirements, software testing and quality) and multi-agent systems. Currently, he is focusing on studying and analyzing the quality of existing agent-oriented methodologies in order to provide unified agent-oriented development approaches that can deliver practical means in industrial settings. He is also working on developing a framework to enable understanding and flagging disruptive behavior of distributed social agents (bots) in social networking platforms. In addition, Dr. Slhoub's research is focused on finding effective testing approaches to verify autonomous systems. He attempts to detect ways to verify the irregular behavior of agent-based systems.

I am currently accepting new graduate students (Masters and Doctoral) for the Spring and Summer of 2023. Please reach out to me if you are interested and have SE/CS/CIS or other related background.
