Dr. Hamzeh Khalili received his bachelor degree in Information Technology from Assumption University of Thailand and Master degree in Information and Communication Technology, and a PhD in Network Engineering of Telematics, both from Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) – Barcelona, Spain.

He is currently researcher in the Services as networkS (SaS) Research Unit at CTTC. His main interests and activities are focused on 5G network and beyond (i.e., 5G+ and 6G), 3GPP, ETSI MANO, Software Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Satellite and Terrestrial resource coordination, 3GPP & ETSI standards, and network slicing research and innovation. He has also an extensive experience and research in EPON networks, network architecture and energy saving in optical networks, among others.

He has a working experience of over 10 years in ICT industry, research institutes, European Union (EU) projects and Spanish national projects.

Dr. Hamzeh Khalili has participated in several research projects, funded by the EU and the Spanish government such as 5GMediaHub, 5GEPICENTRE, SaT5G, 5GCity, 5GClarity, 5G-ESSENCE, RESPOND-A, GEANT-3 (GN4-3) and ONOFRE-2, to name a few examples.  He has actively contributed to research and innovation action proposal in H2020 and ICT EU research programs.

He (co) authored many scientific publications, among all, 20+ peer reviewed articles published in high-profile journals, conferences, and book. He also contributed to standardization activities within European framework such as ETSI and 5GPPP Software Network Working Group.
