Dr Yehia Elkhatib

Senior Lecturer


Dr Yehia Elkhatib is a Lecturer (~Assistant Professor) of distributed systems at the School of Computing and Communications of Lancaster University, UK, and a visiting professor at Ecole de Technologie Superieure, Montreal. He is also the co-lead of the Data Acquisition & Infrastructure Theme at the Centre of Excellence in Environmental Data Science (CEEDS). His work aims to enable distributed applications to traverse infrastructural boundaries. In the context of cloud computing, this entails looking into interoperability and migration challenges, as well as related decision support issues. Yehia is the creator and chair of the international Cross-Cloud workshop series. Beyond the cloud, Yehia works on border-free network architectures in intent-driven systems, systems of systems, and information centric networks. He also works on advocating network-awareness which involves measuring networked systems, evaluating network protocols, and proposing new network management strategies.
