Dr. Abdallah Darweesh Qusef

Assistant Professor
Software Engineering
Princess Sumaya University for Technology


In 2001, Dr. Abdallah Qusef received the Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Jordan, graduating with a ranking of “Very good”. As part of the requirements of the Bachelor’s degree, he worked on many undergraduate projects, such as a student registration system using Oracle DB and developer tools, Compiler Programming and a decision-support system using C++ and Java languages, respectively. In 2005, he completed his Master’s degree at Al-Balqà Applied University in Jordan, carrying out research on “Discrete Logarithm Attack against RSA Cryptosystem”, with two publications on a new kind of attack against RSA depending on solving discrete logarithm function. His hard work led to his graduating with an “Excellent” rating. In 2009, he was awarded a scholarship to enroll in the PhD program in Computer Science at the University of Salerno, Italy, where, under the supervision of Prof. Andrea De Lucia, he received a PhD degree in Computer Science, specializing in Software Engineering in 2012. He is a member of IEEE, ACM, and the Software Engineering Lab at the same university. He has served on the committees of many conferences, such as ICSEA2016, AEECT2017, ICIT2016, and ISSE 2016. Moreover, he is a reviewer for many international journals like the Journal of Computer Science and Technology, Patents on Computer Science, the International Journal on Advances in Software, and the American Journal of Computer Science and Information Engineering.
