Professor Fahmy's research interests lie in the design and evaluation of network architectures and protocols. Her work is published in over 100 refereed papers, including publications in IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE INFOCOM, ICNP, and ICDCS, and ACM MOBICOM and CoNEXT. She received the National Science Foundation CAREER award in 2003. Her research has been supported by grants from the government and industry including NSF, DHS, AT&T, Cisco Systems, Hewlett-Packard, Juniper Networks, Meta, Northrop Grumman, Schlumberger, and BBN. Fahmy has served on the organizing or technical program committees of several conferences including ACM SIGCOMM, MOBICOM, SIGMETRICS, and CoNEXT, and IEEE INFOCOM, ICNP, and ICDCS, and on the editorial boards of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking, IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing, and IEEE Transactions on Computers. She is a member of the ACM, and a fellow of the IEEE.
