I am Malik Tubaishat. I am half Jordanian and half Syrian. I lived in Kuwait, Jordan, Malaysia and currently living in the USA to pursue a PhD degree. During my stay in the United States I worked as a teaching assistant, graduate instructor and currently I am a graduate research assistant.
My research interests are in wireless sensor networks, machine learning, self-organizing systems, and traffic engineering. Currently, my research is focused on binary code analysis and detecting malicious code using machine learning methods. When I am not working on my research I like reading non-fiction books. I write almost all my posts at coffee shops.
This blog is about my new life in the United States, my observations and thoughts about a new culture.
Jaraad is an Arabic word for locusts; migratory insects that swarm. They are also known for their love of food and traveling.
