Dr. Nahid Majd

I am an Assistant Professor in the Computer Science and Information Systems Department at California State University San Marcos.

My research and teaching focuse on Computer Networks and Security, with an emphasis on Wireless Sensor and Ad Hoc Networks. I am also active in research and teaching on Energy Harvesting Wireless Sensor Networks.

Research Opportunities: I am looking for highly-motivated Master students to work with me on the exciting areas of Wireless Sensor and Ad Hoc Networks!
  (a) For CSUSM students, the best way to learn about my research work is to
  take my course. 

  (b) For non-CSUSM students, please submit your application here
